Karina Akarana

Primary Prevention Officer

Karina joins the White Ribbon Australia team in a Primary Prevention role based in Australia’s Top End. Karina brings experience from the correctional services, homeless youth sector and pre & post release support and has also completed a Bachelor of Nursing and a Bachelor of Social Work.

Inspired by the advocacy and motion of White Ribbon Australia, is what inspired Karina to become a Primary Prevention Officer as she believes she can make a valuable difference in ending gender based violence.

Outside of work you will find Karina on the netball court or busy volunteering in her role as an Ambassador for So Brave at local events where she advocates for breast care awareness. If you spend any time with Karina, you will instantly notice her passion for our First Nations People and wider communities and disengaged youth and homelessness.
