Attendees honored Ginny’s courage and persistence at the GreenBook party launching the GRIT Report, sponsored by Google Consumer Surveys at Hurley’s Saloon Bar on March 19th. Over 200 guests embodied the best of the research industry – an intelligent, energetic group excited about challenging and gutsy work.

Kristin Luck, Decipher (US), for Fearlessly Advocating Gender Equality
Stan Sthanunathan, Coca-Cola (US), for Leading by Principle

These winners inspire us with their dedication and drive: they include clients pushing for more innovative suppliers or taking unpopular stands on research issues; researchers shaking up their industry’s culture and received wisdom; and researchers working in dangerous conditions to allow people’s voices to be heard. For more information about the winners please see the attached presentation (Powerpoint or PDF)
The Research Liberation Front thanks our distinguished judging panel for their time, and their dedication to recognizing bravery in research: Catherine Moffatt (Diageo), Diane Hessan (Communispace), Alec Maki (Bellomy Research), Jon Puleston (GMI) and Angry MR Client (Agent Provocateur on Twitter).
