My name is Melanie Rayment and I'm a social designer based in Sydney, Australia, and currently a Director at The Australian Centre for Social Innovation. Moments of Change is a podcast dedicated to exploring the moments that we learn from as we seek to design and cultivate positive social change. In this episode, I speak with Shanti Mathew, Deputy Director of Public Policy Lab, a nonprofit innovation lab based in New York.

Shanti's mission is to use collective power to build better lives through government. She shares with me her passion and experience in partnering effectively to bring communities into policy design, transform service systems and pilot new social programs. She has led work with the New York City Administration for Children's Services, the Department of Education, the Department of Homeless Services, and the US Department of Veterans Affairs, among many other public interest organisations.
