CEDA is delighted to welcome Ingrid Cumming, founder and Chief Executive Officer of Kart Koort Wiern and Chief of Engagement at Codeswitch. An inspiring and passionate young Whadjuk Noongar woman, academic and leader, Ingrid hopes to become Australia's first Aboriginal Female Prime Minister. Ingrid has harnessed her passion for leadership and diversity and is committed to inspiring and mentoring youth into leadership roles.

A graduate of Murdoch University and Melbourne Business School, Ingrid has presented and published an article with the United Nations Women Leaders Collective in Israel and represented Indigenous Australian Business at the Supply Diversity forum in San Antonio Texas. Ingrid has also presented at TEDxPerth 2014, been a keynote at various conferences and leadership forums about Indigenous knowledge, leadership and reconciliation and won Indigenous Business of the Year at the Belmont Small Business Awards in 2014. Ingrid also recently became a board member of the National Indigenous Women in Business Group. Her commitment and passion for her community, leadership, youth and reconciliation is her driver to inspire, mentor and lead youth into positions of leadership, to promote reconciliation and to promote and encourage the idea that positive minds and actions create positive futures.

Ingrid is founder and Chief Executive Officer of Kart Koort Wiern (Head Heart and Spirit), a Perth based Indigenous consultancy that offers consultancy, training and workshops across Australia promoting reconciliation and increasing awareness of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander strengths and strategy. In 2016 Ingrid joined forces with Kia Dowell and Chantal Harris to create the new company Codeswitch.

Join Ingrid as she shares her personal journey and provides strategies and tips to harness the power of passion and diversity for aspiring leaders in all industries.
