“Robyn Parker brings to the role over 30 years of public sector experience, commencing her career working in child and family services across a number of disadvantaged communities,” Delphis Chair, Dr Deborah Meyer announced.

“She spent 13 years as a TAFE teacher before moving into the political arena, spending 12 years as an MLC, MP and minister in the NSW Parliament,” Dr Meyer said.

“Robyn Parker is an exceptional influencer, strategist and proven stakeholder engagement expert. “She is renowned for her unique resilience, integrity and authenticity of character,” she said.

“Just as importantly, Robyn has a genuine passion for empowering individuals and supporting carers, staff and volunteers.” Ms Parker has owned and managed several small businesses and is a graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.

“Taking the opportunity this year to move outside of politics and on to new ventures in the not-forprofit sector, I look back on the past 12 years with enormous respect for my colleagues from right across the political spectrum but most importantly the people we serve,” Ms Parker said.

“I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity and privilege to be part of the team at Delphis which is such a wonderful caring and supportive organisation.”
