Accessing fresh thinking

GRI members participate in our research workshops each month, giving them exclusive access to research findings. Members also have the opportunity to influence the future direction of GRI’s research work.

Engaging in dialogue

GRI has a full and varied roster of events throughout the year including seminars, workshops and panel discussions, all of which call upon industry leaders and subject matter experts across various sectors.
