Belinda Duarte

Belinda Duarte is the CEO of Culture is Life, an organisation pushing forward Indigenous-led solutions to lower the rate of youth suicide. She’s also the recipient of the 2020 Chief Executive Women Vincent Fairfax Fellowship scholarship.

As a proud Wotjobaluk and Dja Dja Wurrung woman, Duarte points to the first time she experienced racism as a child, and how it woke her up to the inherent challenges and disadvantages Aboriginal people faced in their country compared to their white counterparts.

Since then, she has drawn on the strength and experience of her elders past and present, and her community, to inform her leadership and achieve change for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
