Her expertise in public policy, strategy and systems thinking stems from experience in government, not-for-profit organisations and the private sector. She has worked on complex policy issues across early childhood and school education, housing and system design, and has contributed to significant reforms at a state and national level.
Prior to Nous, Varuni managed the government relations and policy work at the Front Project, an organisation focused on improving early childhood education in Australia, through a systems change approach. She has worked on state-wide reforms in strategic policy teams at the Victorian Department of Education and Training and the Victorian Department of Treasury and Finance.
Varuni has also volunteered at not-for-profit organisations delivering education programs for people from diverse backgrounds.
Varuni enjoys meaningful conversations with family and friends, exploring new sounds, learning about the world around her and the smell of popcorn in movie theatres.
