Human & Cultural Values Research – what we hope to understand with UWA’s Dr Julie Lee (Perth, AU)
“Our values represent, define and express what is important to us” - The Centre for Human and Cultural Values
We welcome Dr Julie Lee from UWA to talk to us about research into Human Values and the new research centre at UWA The Centre for Human and Cultural Values.
Following the recent opening of the centre and the ‘Values Impact Forum’, Dr Lee will share with us an overview of the forum, the centre and what the research is understanding and hoping to understand about Human Values: Social, Workplace, Cultural and Personal values, and perhaps how this understanding of human values can affect decision making and changes in behaviour.
