Dr. Karina Davis has worked for equity and social change across her career in education and employment and has led various teams across significant transformational organisational, policy and/or management change.

Karina was the first in her family to finish high school. Understanding the impact of disadvantage inspired Karina to pursue a career in social change, and she has spent over a decade developing innovative educational and training programs to make the system more inclusive.

She has held executive and/or senior roles including as Executive Director, Education at Monash College; Executive Director, Programs and Educational Leadership at Melbourne Polytechnic; and a Research Fellow and Lecturer at the University of Melbourne.  Across her career experience, Karina has focused on big picture strategic and transformational change with a commitment to help create environments where all can achieve and succeed.

Karina is currently the CEO of Jobsbank, an independent for purpose organisation based in Naarm (Melbourne), helping employers reach their diversity, inclusion, and social procurement goals. Jobsbank aims to achieve results that are sustainable in the long term. In every project her team identifies the social issues as well as the business opportunities and works on both levels to deliver positive social impact and commercial results.
