Western Australian Aboriginal Leadership Institute

The Western Australian Aboriginal Leadership Institute is an independent, not-for-profit organisation based in Perth, with the purpose of inspiring and supporting Aboriginal people to take up leadership opportunities to strengthen their families and communities. 


The Western Australian Aboriginal Leadership Institute aims to be a place of leadership learning for Aboriginal people through cultural ways of working.

Our Story

WAALI was launched in February 2018 to help overcome Aboriginal disadvantage by building leadership and governance capabilities amongst Aboriginal people, and inspiring participants to affect meaningful change within their families and communities.
