Laura Clemesha, Senior Associate
Laura is a psychologist, a former elite athlete, and a passionate advocate for making Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion “business as usual” within organisations.
A serving member of the Queensland Firebirds netball team from 2013-2019, Laura learnt the importance of teamwork first-hand, on and off the court. When it comes to diversity, group dynamics, collaborative leadership styles and a strengths-based approach to help get the best out of people and teams, Laura draws clear parallels between sport and business. Her work in leadership, team development, cultural transformation and process improvement is brought to life by real strategies, plays and stories from her sporting career.
Laura combines hands on experience with deep expertise in human and organisational behaviour. Along with completing degrees in organisational psychology and psychological science, Laura has worked as a consultant with diverse organisations in government, health, mining, and education.
Striving to have the broadest impact possible around the value of diversity and inclusion, Laura is committed to equipping leaders with mindsets, skills and capacities that help them create workplaces of the future, where team members from all walks of life feel welcomed, capable, excited, and fulfilled.
