    Sharon Wood-Kenney is a proud Noongar Yamatji woman with family connections across Boorloo (Perth) and across WA. She is a highly sought after agent for systems change and guest speaker on finding ways for living ones best life with inclusive philosophies. A strong advocate for tough conversations on disruption thinking, challenging non-functioning systems and cross-cultural awareness, Sharon Wood-Kenney brings people together and with a strong leadership style, working through a complex cultural lens with a scope beyond many.

    With strong ties in both the Indigenous and other communities, Sharon Wood-Kenney is intent on creating opportunities for all disadvantaged children, families, and individuals.

    When Sharon Wood-Kenney and WiTWA started yarning about culture, similarities and differences, and how this all links to a world that is underpinned by technology, Sharon started seeing how this could all be woven together into the dreamtime stories of the future.

    Sharon Wood-Kenney was inducted to the WA Women’s Hall of Fame in 2020.
