"ANZSOG has given me another layer, another step up, to enhance what was already there. 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)
Our alumni are a community of influential public sector leaders from across Australia, New Zealand, the Indo/Pacific region and internationally. The community is now almost 3,600 strong and based in 37 countries.
Every person that completes an ANZSOG core program becomes part of the alumni:
ANZSOG alumni are motivated and successful leaders with a broad range of experiences. The alumni are an unparalleled resource for your professional network.
We see the alumni as a group of people we can work with and advocate for, and engage in some of the big issues the public sector is confronting. As part of this community, you will have a unique opportunity to contribute to the future direction of the School and the public purpose sectors at large.
Our Alumni program will help you to build on and refresh your skills, knowledge and networks, and broaden your sphere of influence.
The program is designed to keep you connected, inspired, educated and enriched.
The Alumni Advisory Council will be the ANZSOG alumni peak representative body.
The Council will represent the interests and views of a diverse alumni community and provide a formal channel for alumni to communicate with the ANZSOG executive to inform ANZSOG’s future direction, education and research offerings and alumni activities.
The Council will draw on the expertise and engagement of Alumni to ensure that this important community can influence the future direction of the School.
The Council will have up to 18 members, one or two alumni from each jurisdiction. You can read more about the role, functions and objectives of the Council here:
