Kristal Kinsela is the supplier diversity expert who’s done it all before. A published author, trusted advisor to leading global organisations and descendant of both the Jawoyn and Wiradjuri nations, Kristal brings lived experience and over 18 years of business expertise to every partnership.

Mundanara is the Managing Director and co-founder of the BlackCard Pty Ltd, which is a 100% Aboriginal owned business certified with Supply Nation. Mundanara co-founded BlackCard with Dr Lilla Watson, who is a respected Aboriginal elder, artist, educator and long-time course developer.

Mundanara’s cultural heritage is connected to the Wonnarua and Bunjalung people on her mother’s side and the Birri-Gubba and Gungalu on her father’s side. As a proud advocate for her people, she follows in her father’s footsteps and aims to make a positive contribution.

She is also the founder and host of The Black Magic Woman Podcast which features mainly First Nations people from across Australia sharing their stories about their journey to highlight the diversity amongst First Nations peoples and the resilience of her people.

It is an honour to get the woman behind the mic on the other end of an interview and hear about her why! Make sure you listen to her podcast on Apple and Spotify, and if you’re flying Virgin, you can grab her podcast on there until the end of the year!
