Ms Crina Virgona

Crina Virgona has worked in industry as an educator for close on 20 years. Her field was originally literacy and ESL. More recently she has worked in a broad range of industry consulting programs and in research. She has recently completed her PhD looking at the aspirations and the shortfall of the Industry Restructuring movement of the 1990s. Working with others in the Workplace Learning Initiatives team, she has researched areas of generic skills and the literacies of industry. These topics have direct bearing on questions of diversity and the directions of work and industry policy.
