About

Dr. Addy Adelaine is an international social worker and methodological expert on inclusive research and accountability.

Working in the UK and internationally, her specialist areas of work include: inclusive organisational development; action research; gender, race and youth equality; humanitarian practice; collaborative knowledge creation and ethical social research practices in challenging environments.

In 2020, Dr Addy co-authored an open letter to UKRI which challenged inequity in higher education and research. Whilst the open letter was signed by almost 3,000 individuals and arguably led to heightened awareness in the sector it took over a year for UKRI to respond publicly.

Dr Adelaine established and led the non-profit organisation Ladders4Action between 2016 and 2023. 

Dr Addy continues to advocate for inclusion, accountability and knowledge equity in a wide range of sectors and disciplines.
