About Our Presenter:

Dr. Lynn Davey is the President of Davey Strategies and a psychologist whose work focuses on bringing cognitive and social science to bear on communication strategies for social and public health problems. Lynn began her career as a professor of psychology but left her tenured position to focus on bringing social science to social change efforts – first becoming research director at a policy advocacy organization, and later serving as Vice President of the FrameWorks Institute, a framing science think tank in Washington, D.C. In 2011, she started her own consultancy from her home base of Portland, Maine and, through trainings and intensive technical assistance, focuses on helping experts and advocates apply framing research to their own work.
