The West Australia branch of 180 Degrees Consulting was founded in March 2016.

Founded as the 180 Degrees Consulting of the University of Western Australia, the branch brings together the most enthusiastic and socially-conscious students to create ideas, take practical action and make lasting change. The WA branch works with not-for-profit organisations and strengthens their ability to achieve their social impact goals through the development of innovative, practical and sustainable solutions. Our student consultants are given the opportunity to gain real-world consulting experience whilst having a lasting social impact in the community. 180DC WA is supported by a network of professional industry mentors who provide hands-on coaching to project teams.

Outside of projects, 180DC runs networking and training events open to all WA students, enabling students to interact with industry professionals and gain insight into the world of management consulting.

In 2018, the branch regionalised to 180 Degrees Consulting of Western Australia and caters to students from all West Australian Universities.
