Dalit Kaplan

Dalit has backgrounds in law, podcast-production, storytelling training, impact investing, and worrying.

Writing, her primary focus right now, has accompanied her through every twist and turn of her messy professional journey, and has often served as a way out of personal challenges.

She has had essays published in a range of online publications and volumes.  She writes about illness, fertility, loss, Judaism, the Holocaust, feminism and politics.

She is currently writing her first novel.

Dalit is also a director of Just World Investments, an impact investment fund that sits within a Sydney-based family office, (though she resides in Melbourne).  Just World Investments’ mission is to harness capital to create meaningful social and environmental change and to help solve some of our generation’s greatest challenges.  It seeks to create a better future through a blend of radically ethical investment and grant making.  

Dalit is also the founder of Storywell, a business that provides podcast production, storytelling workshops and coaching for purpose-driven organisations, community legal centres and start-ups.  Her mission is to promote greater empathy through storytelling.


She completed her BA/LLB with honours at the University of Melbourne and her LLM at the University of Chicago Law School. She launched her legal career in commercial law at Gilbert + Tobin, but quickly transitioned to refugee and family violence law in the community sector.

Dalit is based in Melbourne, Australia but has lived in Chicago, New York, Jerusalem, Austin and Sydney.

She has two young children and is always tired.
