Community Catalyst Innovator

Track C CONSULTING, established in 2019 by Pirooz Jafari, is based on Wadawurrung Country.

Born in Iran, Pirooz migrated to Australia in the late 1990’s as an ambitious photographer, holding a Bachelor in Visual Arts. His passion for social justice and human rights compelled him to pursue law and upon successful completion of a Bachelor of Laws at University of Wollongong, he worked in the community sector and local government both in NSW and Victoria for over two decades.

Over the years, Pirooz has offered his services as a pro bono lawyer at several community legal centres including Refugee Advice & Case Work Service in NSW, and Western Suburbs Legal Service and Refugee Legal (formerly known as Refugee & Immigration Legal Centre) in Victoria. 

Pirooz ran his own migration law practice for over 5 years specialising in asylum seeker and humanitarian cases. This experience enriched his understanding of people’s challenging experience of gross violations of human rights.

Pirooz is committed to bringing critical  conversations to the Geelong region and has hosted three major forums in Geelong: Diversity & Inclusion (2021), Racism, Raw & Real (2022) and Gender Equality (2023).

With over 20 years’ experience in the legal arena, community development, community engagement, project management, and policy development within the human rights framework, Pirooz is versatile and capable of taking on challenging projects. 

Pirooz is also a writer and a story-teller, as such, has a unique set of skills and sensitivity to capture people’s stories and voices, his debut novel Forty Nights was published by Ultimo Press in 2022 and was long listed for the Miles Franklin Literary Award in 2023.
