Panel 1


Collective clarity of purpose is the invisible leader. – Mary Parker Follett

Kiri is creating a world where diversity, equality and collaboration are central through:

  • Communities of practice – creating an open culture of collaboration driven by shared purpose.
  • Codesign processes – bringing community, stakeholders, experts and government together to develop shared responses to complex problems.
  • Training in gender equity and prevention of violence against women – communicating the nature and impact of violence and inspiring participants to create a world where everyone can flourish.
  • Project management – design, delivery and evaluation of projects that change the way we live.

Her work is:

  • Collaborative – the best solutions draw on diverse perspectives and involve a variety of stakeholders.
  • Ecological – consistent with systems theory, projects need to be considered within the contexts of family, community, society and the Earth.
  • Feminist – all humans have a right to flourish regardless of their gender but our current social structures create complex barriers that result in disadvantage.
  • Intersectional – the movement of power in our society needs to be made transparent and actively redressed to avoid increasing disadvantage.
