Few people have had a greater impact on developing the capabilities and aspirations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander leaders than Rachelle Towart. As an Indigenous woman with a powerful personal story of the effectiveness of leadership development, Rachelle has elevated awareness of the importance of Indigenous leadership and governance capacity to the national stage. Moving to the Australian Indigenous Leadership Centre in 2004, Rachelle was appointed CEO in 2007 and transformed the organisation, tripling revenue and more than doubling enrolments while putting Indigenous leadership firmly on the national agenda. She formed Pipeline Talent to build support for emerging Indigenous leaders after recognising the need for an improved range of tailored support programs for Indigenous executives. Rachelle was awarded an Order of Australia Medal in 2018 in recognition of her achievements in building Indigenous leadership capability across Australia.
