Impact Solutions International

Ella Gauci-Seddon

I am a values driven woman who cares deeply about affecting positive change for people, culture and the environment. My passion lies in promoting equity and social justice. I work with individuals and organisations to deliver this change for the benefit of the individual, the organisation and society more broadly. This not only aligns with basic human rights, it also makes good business sense.

Over the past nine years I have worked in the built environment profession. I have experience in the public and private sectors, academia and with the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA). During this time I have successfully built and led high-performing teams and delivered complex and award-winning projects. I am responsible for understanding and translating the wants and needs of diverse stakeholders groups into high profile strategies, plans and public spaces. In 2021 I was awarded the AILA Presidents award in recognition of my commitment to advocacy, the empowerment of women and the progression of young professionals.

I have completed a comprehensive course in the delivery of gender equity programs, as well as the Impact Solutions International Emerging Leaders Training and Advanced Leadership and Consultants Training.


What are you really passionate about?

Working with people and organisations to create a world where everyone feels valued and welcome and has equal access to resources, opportunities, privilege, wealth and services. I am specifically interested in how we can dismantle the harmful effects of patriarchy and colonisation. A drive for equity motivates everything I do.

How has Impact Solutions International helped your development?

Working with Impact Solutions International has provided me with the frameworks, tools and skills to become a strong leader, facilitator and coach, and apply my passions for the benefit of others. Importantly it has allowed me to recognise and develop my existing strengths. Working with ISI has allowed me to become a more whole version of myself and in doing so become a grounded leader and advocate.

What work do you most like to do?

I find great joy in working with teams to collaboratively define and understand complex problems, and develop actionable solutions. It’s incredibly rewarding to help people harness their unique qualities, values and lenses in order to strengthen the broader team.
