Along her path to PhD candidacy focusing on complexity, integration and implementation through a disposition of interdisciplinarity, Stephany earned her BA Honours with Distinction and MA Valedictorian. Her methodology fosters expressions of culture and identity as the vehicles for paradigmatic transformation in ever-changing and emergent environments. By disrupting space, place, and time, she holds those for the historically excluded to become part of our complex global society of meaning making for an emerging future. In this approach, underlying narratives become visible, and we recognize diversity as the strength of complex systems. Furthermore, the necessary reaction that is the process of knowledge implementation becomes the focus through relevant expertise common to any complex problem.
Stephany stewards collaborations for tackling the most intractable problems we face as a global society: beyond symptoms and systems to a more comprehensive whole. She has modelled Tetrahedron for knowledge from theory to policy to practice through the not for profit she founded for the purpose.
Let me tell you a story you will recognize, because together, it is ours.
