Laura Kirby


With a diverse background spanning Local Government, the Private Sector and a decade dedicated to the Not for Profit space, I bring a unique blend of business acumen and social justice advocacy to the forefront of my work.

I am highly motivated and results-driven and have carved a career path fuelled by a deep passion for equity and empowerment.

In my role as CEO at MADALAH, I am committed to championing the educational journeys of young people, ensuring they have the support and resources needed to achieve their individual goals. This commitment stems from a profound belief in the transformative power of education and the importance of providing equal opportunities for all. 

I find great fulfillment in seeing our young people both supported and empowered to take charge of their futures, knowing that their success not only impacts their lives but also inspires the next generation. My aim is for MADALAH to continue to be a beacon of hope and support for those striving to overcome barriers and reach their full potential.

Acknowledgement of Country

MADALAH acknowledges and pays tribute to the Whadjuk Noongar, the Traditional Custodians of the Lands on which we work, and we pay our respects to their Elders – past, present and emerging. This acknowledgement extends to the First Peoples’ land across the state of Western Australia which is home to the many students that we support.

MADALAH recognises and values the continuity of cultural, educational and spiritual practices of First Peoples.

We wish to advise our First Peoples that this site may contain the names, images or audio-visual recordings of people who have passed.
