Professor Sharon Moore

Biography

Sharon has a lively and varied career in Social work and Human Services Management. Since 2014 she has been working at ACAP with Professor Carolyn Noble in developing an innovative School of Social Work, based on adult learning pedagogy with a focus on critical theory and internationalism.

Sharon began in Correctional Social Work with young people in the criminal justice system and families in need of care and protection. She helped lead the move to community-based corrections and a strong focus on education and training, which in part resulted in prison numbers radically reduced in favour of alternative community justice. She then moved to social work education as a lecturer at Phillip Institute of Technology, which later amalgamated with RMIT in Melbourne.  She had a leadership role in the development of a Structural and Anti oppressive practice approach pioneered in Australia by PIT/RMIT Social Work School, and was responsible for developing programs in AntiSexist and AntiRacist Social Work as well as Rural Social Work and Community Development. She held a dual appointment with the Western Regional Council for Social Development bringing social work services to the west of Melbourne through an innovative field education unit resourcing human services development from environmental action to older people services and forging new roles for social workers in politicians’ offices and industry.

Sharon’s next move was to establish and lead the Carers’ Movement in Victoria for a ten-year period, complementing Carers NSW, leading to the establishment of Carers Australia and the International Carer Movement. This commitment to primary care and support for people with disabilities and family carers led to her writing community care and disability policy for all major political parties, and a range of government policy and leadership roles and increasingly, international work on aged care  and community care service development. At this time she completed her PhD on Community Care with a thesis entitled “From Women’s Caring to Markets and Managers” reflecting the privatisation and marketisation of care services.

More recently Sharon has had a role as Professor of Management in Strategy and International Business and developed her interests in Sustainability and the people side of management. She has worked extensively in Melbourne, Sydney and the Asia Pacific region teaching and researching human services management. 

Research Interests

Sharon has a longstanding commitment to social sustainability and developing sustainable organisations. She is also passionate about learning and teaching and the learning organisation. Her research on community care is ongoing collaborative work with university colleagues in Europe and North America. She is Founding Research Director for a university in Guang Zhou, Southern China where she uses industry case studies to develop sustainability organisational theory for China and the Asia Pacific region.

Teaching Interests

Becoming a Social Worker - Social Policy and Practice Context; Critical Theories and Skills, Social Work Practice with Group, Teamwork and Organisational Learning as well as Community and Advocacy; Ageing and Aged Services are among her teaching interests. Leadership and Management, and Sustainability in Social Work are also areas of expertise.
