Eva Purvis

Eva Purvis

Eva started working as a Maven Adviser in April 2020. She specialises in training and awareness, developing and implementing disability action and inclusion plans and community consultations.

Eva has held various roles in government and not for profit organisations for many years. This includes experience as a disability work trainer, a youth worker, a social anthropologist and in disability and Aboriginal affairs. Her work in remote Aboriginal communities in the Northern Territory has given her insight into issues that people with disabilities face. 

Throughout this work, Eva has delivered training to case workers, foster carers and young people, Aboriginal communities and employees. Eva has deep experience in community engagement and working cross culturally. 

Eva is passionate about social justice issues, particularly inclusion. She believes that organisations need to have practices in place to back up inclusion policies. 

Eva’s greatest work achievement has been assisting Aboriginal Traditional Owners in the Kakadu Repeat Land Claim that resulted in Aboriginal Traditional Owners gaining their land rights after a 40-year fight for recognition. 

Eva holds a Master of Applied Anthropology and Participatory Development focusing on community development.
