Business School
School of Management and Governance

My primary areas of focus are diversity, inclusion, inclusive leadership, interpersonal inclusion and the future of work. I blend academic rigor with practitioner insights. Currently a Professor of Practice in the School of Management and Governance, as well as a board member and independent workplace consultant, I was previously a partner in Deloitte. For ten years I led the National Diversity & Inclusion Consulting Practice in which capacity I advised global executives on D&I strategy and inclusive leadership. Prior to Deloitte I was a co-founder of a boutique D&I consulting firm, and prior to that I worked in Government as a lawyer specialising firstly in criminal law and then human rights. As a sessional lecturer, I taught Organisational Behaviour at UNSW, and Advanced Discrimination Law at the University of Sydney.  I hold a PhD from Brunel University London, and my thesis was awarded the Dean's prize for innovation and social impact.
