The finalists were announced last week, and I am honored to be one of the individuals recognised in the New Zealand Women of Influence 2015.
“This programme recognises and celebrates women from all walks of life who make a difference to everyday Kiwis,” said Ms. Louise Upston, New Zealand Minister for Women. “We are committed to increasing the visibility of women’s leadership in New Zealand, highlighting the important contribution women take in creating a bold and diverse future for New Zealand,” she added.
I am honored to be part of this extraordinary group of women who have committed time and energy to help and encourage other women in their industry and their community. Mentoring women has been a passion of mine throughout my career and I am proud to continue that practice with all my energy. I also look forward to meeting my fellow finalists at the Gala Dinner at SKYCity in Auckland on November 4 when winners will be announced.
