Transparency International Papua New Guinea Executive Director stepping down

Emily George Taule

Farewell and Tenkyu tumas (thank you) to Emily George Taule!

After 12 years at the helm of Transparency International Papua New Guinea (TIPNG) as the Executive Director, Emily George Taule has stepped down for a well-earned break. One of the longest serving Executive Director’s in the movement, Emily has served TIPNG and the Transparency cause with much commitment, passion and inspiration. 

During her time with TIPNG, Emily was instrumental in devising the Sir Anthony Siaguru Walk Against Corruption - TIPNG's annual flagship fundraising and outreach event. The first Walk Against Corruption was held in 2007 in the country's capital, Port Moresby, and later garnered interest in various provinces in Papua New Guinea. The walk has been so successful year-after-year that it has often been used as a practical example of citizen mobilization and fundraising across the TI movement. Some chapters have adopted the idea and have organized walks in their own countries.

Emily was a strong asset to TIPNG having had well-grounded management experience from serving government for over 22 years followed by 4 years in private sector.

Emily’s outside interests are predominantly in sports. She is a recognized figure in the PNG sports community, having given considerable sports development services especially in netball and softball. This culminated in her being awarded the British Empire Medal for distinguished service to sports and the community in 1995. She was also awarded a Silver Medal for Distinguished Services to Sports Administration in 1996. Emily has represented Papua New Guinea in netball and softball during her yester years.
