Liz has spent 15 years developing cultural tourism and native food enterprises with Aboriginal entrepreneurs across the Kimberley region. Before that, Liz worked in agriculture, having grown up on a farm in the WA wheatbelt and graduated with a B.SC (Agric.) Hons from the University of WA. Transitioning from agriculture to socio-economic development entailed completing postgraduate qualifications in History and Politics, and then Business, at Notre Dame University (NDU). A subsequent two-year stint teaching Business to Aboriginal students at NDU, Broome campus, deepened Liz’s understanding of the shared history between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people and started her on the path of socio-economic development. A recently completed ‘Next Economy’ MBA via the USA, revisiting key business fundamentals from a socially just and environmentally regenerative perspective, has cemented her passion for supporting social enterprises.
