Kate Healy

Kate Healy is a purpose-driven leader with almost a decade of experience across Indigenous economic development in Australia and New Zealand. After practicing as a commercial lawyer for 15 years, she gained operational experience while during her 4.5 years as the COO of an Auckland-based Māori corporation and since joining PwC’s Indigenous Consulting in 2019 has brought her skills, strategic approach and broad-based knowledge to projects with an Indigenous economic development focus. She has led PIC’s Economic Development team nationally for the past 2 years.

Kate is a non-Indigenous ally, motivated to work with and for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as they realise greater self-determination. She believes that strong First Nations’ economies are intimately connected with improvements in the social and emotional well-being of Australia’s First Peoples.
