Morgan Pommells, MSW Alum'15

MSW Alum featured in the UN’s 2019 Global Assessment Report

We are pleased to announce that Morgan Pommells, graduate of McMaster’s School of Social Work (MSW ’15), has had her research featured in the UN’s 2019 Global Environment Outlook Report!

Sep 17, 2019

Morgan Pommells completed her MSW in 2015 at McMaster, and she did her thesis in McMaster's collaborative program with United Nations University. Her thesis focused on gender violence and WaSH and she was able to publish two articles off her findings. Quite notably, Morgan’s research has now been featured in the UN’s 2019 Global Environment Outlook Report and is quoted on page 529, in the WaSH section.

From the GEO website:

Published in time for the Fourth United Nations  Environmental Assembly, UN Environment’s sixth Global Environment Outlook (2019) calls on decision makers to take immediate action to address pressing environmental issues to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals as well as other Internationally Agreed Environment Goals, such as the Paris Agreement.

What an accomplishment... Congratulations, Morgan!
