Isabelle Reinecke


Isabelle Reinecke is a prominent leader successfully driving system change on the critical issues of our time, helping build a fairer, safer and more inclusive Australia.

In 2017, Isabelle founded Grata Fund, a leading not-profit that acts as a campaigner, litigation incubator and funder for people and communities challenging systemic gridlocks across three key areas: human rights, climate injustice and democratic freedoms.

Grata has incubated numerous landmark cases that have set significant precedents and shifted the dial on important subjects, including climate change, abuse in offshore refugee detention centres, and establishing new rights to humane housing in remote First Nations communities.

Prior, Isabelle had more than 10 years’ experience as a director and lawyer at organisations including Getup, Immigration Advice and Rights Centre, and as a solicitor at Clayton Utz.

Isabelle was named the 2022 Emerging NFP Leader in Women’s Agenda Leadership Awards, is a Churchill Fellow, and the 2021 Women’s Leadership Institute of Australia Fellow.

A mum of one, she is also part of the big conversations about providing more support for working mothers and female leaders.
