Dr Jenny Crosbie

Dr Jenny Crosbie is a Principal Industry Fellow at the Centre for Social Impact Swinburne (CSI Swinburne) .

Jenny has worked to support people with disability to be included in community life for over 35 years, in a variety of research, advocacy and practice roles.

Jenny has a particular interest in understanding and addressing barriers to economic participation that young people with intellectual disability face, in particular barriers at the system level, which limit opportunities available.

Her PhD research reconceptualises thinking about economic participation for young people with intellectual disability and identifies factors that promote their inclusion in community-based economic participation roles.
