MEET THE (EXTENDED) MOSAICLAB FAMILY

Jane Kate and Rachael - MosaicLab community engagement facilitators Melbourne Australia

The MosaicLab family has grown over the past 18 months, with the addition of several new faces joining our directors Kim, Keith and Nicole

We’re a tight-knit team and our members are selected based on a very strict set of criteria (i.e. they must laugh at our jokes, enjoy early starts and share our love of eating too much at team meetings).  But all jokes aside – every MosaicLab team member must share our philosophies and values around engagement and participation - so our team is selected with great thought and consideration.

If you’ve worked with MosaicLab recently, some of you will have met Jane, Kate or Rachael already.   Each individual brings something unique and valuable to our team, while also aligning with our principles.

Read on to discover who these ladies are, what drove them to work with MosaicLab and what’s in the works for them this year.

 
Kate Henderson - MosaicLab facilitator and trainer
I’ve always been a big fan of MosaicLab’s work and the way they design and facilitate a good process to tackle some of the most challenging societal problems.  
— Kate

Kate Henderson

The most interesting or unusual job I’ve ever had is being a travel agent.

I feel happiest when I’m working on something meaningful and can help others participate in decision making.  

3 words to describe MosaicLab might be unique, stimulating and productive.

I was drawn to work with MosaicLab because I’ve always been a big fan of their work and the way they design and facilitate a good process to tackle some of the most challenging societal problems.  

On a typical day at work you might find me facilitating, training or at my desk.

Over the next year with MosaicLab I’m looking forward to offering and delivering more training opportunities.

The most satisfying/fulfilling part of my role is the variety of work and being surrounded by inspiring people.

Something not many people know about me is I have more Lego than my young children.

Rachael - MosaicLab
I’m working with an amazing team who are striving to make quality engagement an everyday practice. Getting to be a part of that is just fantastic!
— Rachael

Rachael Brodie

The most interesting or unusual job I’ve ever had is this one now.

I feel happiest when I’m off travelling the world, trying new cuisines and discovering new places.

3 words to describe MosaicLab might be innovative, creative and fun.

I was drawn to work with MosaicLab because of the amazing team and the opportunities to never stop learning every single day.

On a typical day at work you might find me glued to my favourite cup filled with coffee (sustenance is key right?).

Over the next year with MosaicLab, I’m looking forward to being part of a team that continues to make deliberative and high influence engagement a priority and really learning and exploring how I can contribute to the field.

The most satisfying/fulfilling part of my role is knowing that I am working with an amazing team who are striving to make quality engagement an everyday practice. Getting to be a part of that is just fantastic!

Something not many people know about me is that I’m actually a really, incredibly, overwhelmingly clumsy person, despite being very coordinated in sports. 


More about Rachael

Rachael is the youngest member of the MosaicLab family and our go to technology person (because if you’re young you must know the answer right?).   Learn more about Rachael and read her bio here.

 
Jane Lovejoy MosaicLab communication and engagement consultant australia
Over the next year with MosaicLab, I’m looking forward to creating lots of great free resources and content for MosaicLab (because we love sharing stuff!).
— Jane

JANE LOVEJOY

The most interesting or unusual job I’ve ever had is a close call between a Subway ‘sandwich artist’ and a horse riding instructor (university student income!).

I feel happiest when I have no plans – I’m free to read, walk the dog, have coffee with friends – whatever takes my fancy.

3 words to describe MosaicLab might be caring, brave, inspiring.

I was drawn to work with MosaicLab because of their outstanding work, great reputation because I get to work with people that I admire every day.  

On a typical day at work you might find me writing a blog post, creating a video or animation, developing a communications strategy, designing an engagement process or facilitating a session – variety is the spice of life.

Over the next year with MosaicLab, I’m looking forward to creating lots of great free resources and content for MosaicLab (because we love sharing stuff!).

The most satisfying/fulfilling part of my role is working with an organisation that has a positive impact and meeting so many wonderful, diverse people through our projects.

Something not many people know about me is I knew MosaicLab director Nicole for years before I joined the team and considered her my mentor – when the opportunity to work here came up, I think I may have lost my mind a little!

Jane has a background in communications, public relations and events management, but when she discovered the world of community engagement she was hooked.  Learn more about Jane and read her bio here.
