Carla Clarence (she/her)

Principal Social Innovator: Social Health

Working on Gadigal Country

Before joining TACSI, Carla worked in the NFP and employment services sector dedicated to helping and supporting people achieve and sustain, both personal and career goals.

With a particularly strong focus on young people, the socially isolated and individuals with extremely complex life challenges, she believes that a combination of creative ideas and relationship building supports people in striving to create their own positive futures.

Carla approaches her work with a practice-based background of case work, coaching, collaboration, management, partnership building, project development, as well as strategic planning and delivery. 

She brings an ever evolving social practice approach in order to be of service to the social innovation work of TACSI partners and friends. Carla’s philosophical approach is that by creating the right environment all individuals and organisations can participate and partner in new and improved ways to improve our social lives.

Carla's Message Stick

*A message stick is a public form of graphic communication first used by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island Peoples. The objects were carried by messengers over long distances and were used to support a verbal message.

We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians and Owners of the lands in which we work and live on across Australia. We pay our respects to Elders of the past, present and emerging. We are committed to collaboration that furthers self-determination and creates a better future for all. Please note: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are advised that this website may contain images, voices or names of deceased persons in photographs, film, audio recordings or printed material.
At TACSI, diversity and inclusion is more than a statement; equality and accessibility are guiding principles embedded in everything we do. We strongly believe that it’s the collective sum of all our communities differences, life experiences, and knowledge that enables both ourselves and our partners to come together to tackle complex social issues. That’s why we’re committed to having a diverse team made up of people with diverse skills from all backgrounds, including First Nations peoples, LGBTIQ+, mature-age people, and people with visible and non-visible disabilities, regardless of sex, sexuality or gender identity.
