Noongar Cultural Advisor, Curtin University

Ingrid (Ngoorlak) Cumming nee Collard, is a Whadjuk Nyungar woman from Fremantle, Western Australia. A graduate of Murdoch University and Melbourne Business School, she has during her career, presented and published articles internationally, presented at TedXPerth 2014, and is internationally recognized for her work in leadership, Noongar, and wider Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander knowledge, research, community and cultural development.

Ingrid will provide Nyungar cultural advice to University leadership and staff in all areas across the learning and student experience, research, community engagement, people and culture, and Reconciliation. She will oversee the ongoing evolution and implementation of the Indigenous Cultural Capability Framework providing education, leadership, and mentorship for staff and students.

Ingrid will work with Schools to support the development of culturally competent Curtin graduates, able to demonstrate cross-cultural capability and with an applied understanding of local First Peoples’ “katajininy warniny” – Nyungar ways of being, knowing and doing. Ingrid will play a critical role in the development of the unique Nowanup Bush Campus, where staff and students experience Nyungar ways, on country.
