What you will encounter on this blog is very ‘unblog-like’ in that most posts are not your typical 4-6 minute read. The end goal of this project is to give voice to aid workers in a book-length treatment of the results from a 60 item survey that 1010 aid workers world-wide responded to in 2014-2015.  Many of the posts (or combinations thereof) will become chapters in this book after being further edited, vetted and otherwise made ready for prime time.  Though there is much data through which I need to sift, the plan is to have a beta version of Aid Worker Voices:  Survey results and commentary ready some time early this summer.  Go to this post for a more detailed description of the project methodology and purposes.

Here is the poster I presented with my research student.  This outlines a bit of where the final project will go.
