Donna Murray

CEO, Indigenous Allied Health Australia
Donna Murray

I am a proud Wiradjuri and Wonnarua woman of the Marrmabidya/Kalari rivers (Paternal Grandfather kinship) and Gringai Clan of the Hunter Valley region (PaternalGrandmother’s kinship) in NSW. I hold an Adjunct Associate Professor (Industry) at the University of Technology, Sydney and have formal qualifications in Community Development, Management, and Indigenous Governance. I am a 2021 Impact 25 Award-winner with Pro Bono Australia and a member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors (MAICD). I am the current Board Chair of Thirrili Ltd and Board Director of Gayaa Dhuwi (Proud Spirit) Australia.

I am a committed Indigenous community development and Indigenous nation-building practitioner, working to support and assert the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, empowering cultural governance and leadership and embedding Indigenous nation-building principles to support decision-making and strengths-based approaches.

I strongly support and engage in the revitalisation and preservation of Wiradyuri language, culture and heritage through my role on the Budyaan Wiradyuri Language Trust and enjoy working with nation builders and Elders in redesigning a future of our own design honouring Wiradyuri ways.

I also love spending time with my beautiful children, grandchildren and extended family. I love a cuppa with a good yarn and laugh and have a hidden talent for getting the best out of people.
