Kashveera’s parents were told that she would never be able to speak but today in her own voice, Kash has been advocating for the rights of people with disabilities to lead productive, equitable and inclusive lives by removing barriers to accessibility.

Kashveera is a profoundly deaf Chartered Accountant having worked for a decade in the Audit and Risk profession at Anglo American, Deloitte and now at Qantas Airways Limited.

Kashveera has won numerous Government and Civilian awards for her work in the disability sector in her native country, South Africa including a nomination for the prestigious South African Woman of the Year in 2012.

Kash has been focused on assurance, risk management, governance and safety in her operational role and believes safety is a non-negotiable principle for all businesses regardless of size. In addition, Kash currently serves as a Non-Executive Director at the Deaf Society and Hear For You Limited which are both holistically focused on the Deaf community.
