She is a frequent columnist and speaker, most recently presenting scholarly presentations at a conference hosted by Ghent University and War Child in Kampala and at a conference honoring the CRC, hosted by the FXB Center at Harvard. Lindsay was recently honored with the United Nations and Independent Film Project Envision Fellowship for creating media committed to social change. Lindsay frequently works closely with academic institutions such as the Harvard School of Public Health and Queens University, Belfast.

Lindsay has produced dozens of award-winning short films for non-profits and original long form journalism for CNN and BBC. Lindsay produced the award-winning short film, They Came at Night, which competed in seven international film festivals, winning two of them, and the corresponding community-based defection intervention and mobile cinema program currently underway in central Africa through local partners.
