Zita joined BERA in July 2017 and works closely with Events Manager, and Membership and Engagement Manager to plan and deliver authoritative and inspiring conferences in educational research (see, e.g., https://www.bera.ac.uk/blog/looking-back-on-an-event-full-2018).
Having organising a broad range of events for the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights, she is passionate about communicating evidence based research to influence policy making. Zita also provided frontline service when working with schoolchildren from disadvantaged background in Uruguay. Upon return, she graduated from University College London and backpacked in over 30 countries.
