Our latest board member, Dunghutti woman Tracey Thompson, brings a rich lived-experience to Malpa’s work. She has worked with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island communities for more than thirteen years helping them discover the value of empowerment. Tracey was the inaugural Captain of the first Indigenous All-Stars Women’s Rugby League and played with distinction for 16 Test matches.
She has worked as a Jillaroo, a policewoman in Queensland and running projects with Deadly Choices. She is an Ambassador for Deadly Choices. Tracey is also the co-founder of Iron Tracks which worked with the ADF and the Queensland Fire and Emergency Service to improve the lives of young Aboriginal children. She is a passionate believer that the issues Malpa addresses can only be solved with authentic reconciliation of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people working together to deliver solutions.
