Claire O'Kelly

Executive Director ,
Outback Academy Australia

Clare was a key driver in forming the Outback Academy in 2013 with Aboriginal leaders from Victoria and Western Australia. Clare and her colleagues had become frustrated at the slow pace of investment and lack of attention to the core base infrastructure needs of start-up Aboriginal enterprises and organisations. Clare’s work over the past eight years has focused on supporting Aboriginal organisations to position themselves for sustainable business, training and employment. This work informed the establishment of the Outback Academy.
