Kathryn Choules has been involved in the community sector for almost two decades as board member, employee and volunteer (in organisations such as Sussex Street Community Law Service, the One World Centre, Drug Arm and CASE for Refugees).
She now works as a consultant in the sector and at times with government and business. Starting life as a lawyer, she saw the light after working in Guatemala in the mid-1990s in social change education. A career change into education and research was formalised by completing a PhD in 2005 in transformative education. Kathryn has worked in primary, secondary, tertiary and community education.
Kathryn has experience working with Not For Profit organisations in the areas of training, governance, strategic planning, policy and procedures, funding, proposal writing, general advice and community building. Her engagement with the sector is grounded in social justice and a human rights based approach.
