Ali Walker PhD

I am a social scientist exploring leadership, connection and culture. I am the author of bestselling book Get Conscious: How to Stop Overthinking & Come Alive. My second book, Collective Consciousness & Gender was released in August 2018.

I am a lecturer and researcher at the Centre for Social Impact at the University of New South Wales, Sydney. My work focuses on the question: How do we create personal and social flourishing? The answers include: human connection, consciousness, self-awareness, mindfulness, empathy, positive cultures and social connectedness.

I am a contributor to The House of Wellness TV program on Channel 7 Australia and feature on a variety of radio programs including 2GB 873am and ABC Radio National. In 2017, I had two weekly radio segments, 2GB 873am on Saturday mornings; and ‘Conscious Living’ on Radio 2UE Talking Lifestyle 954am.

I speak regularly for companies and organisations about leadership and connection.

From Sydney, Australia, I spent several years researching group behaviour, culture, and law with a doctorate from the Australian National University. In addition to my PhD, I have a Masters degree in International Law & International Relations and two undergraduate degrees in Law (with Merit) and Arts (Politics & International Relations) from the University of NSW. I also have a Graduate Diploma in Integral Coaching.

My Mission

I want to know what lights us up. I want to know what heals us, what inspires us to reach our highest potential, and what transforms us from living on autopilot to living consciously. I am lit up by human connection.

I love finding evidence that we are all connected: shared space, shared values, shared histories, and shared experience. I am driven by the human capacity for empathy: I believe that our lives are punctuated by the moments when our hearts swell. I explore ‘the whole person’ in society: at home, at work and in communities. I believe that connected cultures will lead to the bigger changes we seek.

I love communicating and connecting in all forms: writing, researching, teaching, radio, TV and social media. As you’ve probably guessed, I’m a sunlight type! Connect with me on facebook, instagram, twitter and pinterest. I write and meditate everyday to keep my mind clear. I am lit up by swimming in the ocean, singing, yoga, soulful conversations and being with my family, friends, my husband and two sons.
