A message from KARI CEO Paul Ralph

It means a lot to me and my colleagues at KARI to see Australia’s professional class of
high-achieving Aboriginal doctors, lawyers, teachers, engineers, business managers and entrepreneurs growing every day. These people are quietly getting on with changing their own lives and transforming their industries and communities. They’re setting proud examples and making an important contribution to Australian life and culture.

 

KARI is an innovative and successful Aboriginal enterprise, which has come a long way over the past two decades. Our commitment to a better future for all Aboriginal children, families and communities is at the centre of everything we do. The KARI Leadership Program is fundamental to achieving this positive change. By sharing the latest knowledge, tools and practices in leadership with Aboriginal leaders from all sectors, we’re supporting them on their path to success. KARI provides the guidance of a trusted cohort to support these leaders on this journey.

 

We welcome Aboriginal leaders and leaders who are serving Aboriginal communities to join us on this journey and help us make a difference in our communities.

 

Paul Ralph

Chief Executive Officer

What participants are saying about KARI Leadership

"Jam-packed with relevant and useful information for leaders. Really engaging. No faffing around, unlike a lot of training I'm offered internally in my organisation."

"KARI Leadership resourced us with case study data from global multinationals – the success stories and the failures too. Strategy and planning is a whole new game in the context of a fast moving, high-tech, unpredictable world. I am using new frameworks to set my organization up for long term success."

"I gained new insight into areas of my management style that needed improvement. Already I can see positive changes in outcomes in my direct reports and more broadly throughout the organisation."

"Investigating culture allowed me to understand why so many change initiatives don't work. I now have an updated leadership toolkit, suitable to the complexity and pace of modern workplaces."
