I now know how to navigate relationships for the benefit of the people who I’ve been trying to provide a platform for; which is vulnerable Aboriginal people. And now I truly understand what my purpose is." - Paulleen Markwort, Specialist Adviser – Aboriginal Reform Projects, Department of Health and Human Services (2016 EMPA alumni, Alumni Ambassador and current Alumni Advisory Council member)
