Thought Leadership Activities

Our thought leadership activities work hand in hand with our advocacy efforts. Activities are designed to build impact, amplifying our research insights, challenging the status quo and fostering the kind of debates and discussions that lead to better treatments, better care and healthier societies.

We work with thought leaders from around the world including external Distinguished Fellows alongside George Institute researchers and our Emerging Thought Leaders, to drive conversations forward. Tools include podcasts, data visualisations, impact modelling, infographics, as well as blogs, commentaries, policy briefs and reports, videos and other activities.

We also regularly convene events such as regional webinars, GeorgeTalks and policy roundtables, collaborating with key stakeholders globally and locally.
