KMCC is excited to announce the appointment of two new Board members to the team.
Bryce Soraru has been appointed to the new role of Diversity and Inclusion Officer.

As someone with cerebral palsy, Bryce understands the unique challenges people with disability encounter in their day-to-day lives. Bryce has qualifications in Biomedical Science and Biotechnology, and speaks fluent Japanese. Whilst currently employed as a Business Analyst, Bryce previously worked for disability service provider, AbilityWA. In addition, he has a strong interest in sustainability and remains a land care volunteer.
In another first for the organisation, Edwin Salesh has been appointed as Youth & Sustainability Officer. A young adult himself, Edwin is currently completing university studies in Social Work. He has qualifications in Outdoor Education, and experience in early years education, as well as running youth activities within the local Indian community.

With these appointments KMCC seeks to ensure that youth representation is apparent at the governance level. It also aims to ensure that inclusivity and equity principles, and the needs of young people inform service conceptualisation, planning & implementation.
