M.Dunn (@gold.ac.uk)

I joined Goldsmiths in 2019 as Programme Convenor of the Postgraduate Diploma in Social Work.  Prior to joining Goldsmiths, I was a Team Leader in a busy and diverse South East London Borough. 

My professional experience as a social worker is primarily in the UK, working with children, young people and families across a spectrum of services and in varied roles, both statutory and non-statutory sectors. 

I am a firm believer in the lifelong pursuit of learning, development, and education - as a social worker, practice educator, and as a recent graduate of the Goldsmiths MA in Professional Leadership for Social Work. 

My keen interests outside of university life are running, walking, and dancing - especially salsa.   

Research Interests

I have a keen interest and curiosity in Leadership/Women Leaders in the social work professional, in personal and professional development, connection, participation, and feedback.
