I am Generation Equality: Realizing Women’s Rights

Central Economic Development Agency (CEDA) and Palmerston North Women’s Refuge invite you to join them for an evening of celebration, inspiration and empowerment. 5.30pm to 7.30pm.

After nibbles and networking, join the accomplished Te Aho Tāmaka Leaders in korerō as they discuss their career journeys and the challenges and opportunities along the way.

Te Aho Tāmaka Leaders are all changemakers in their own fields:

  • Dr Farah Palmer, former Black Fern Captain and only woman on the New Zealand Rugby Board
  • Vanisa Dhiru, New Zealand National Commission for UNESCO & former President of the National Council of Women NZ
  • Linda Jenkinson, global entrepreneur and businesswoman.

Together they will address gender inequality and obstacles they've faced in their industries; highlight some of the changes they've seen and made during their careers; and discuss how we can collectively tackle the unfinished business of empowering all women and girls in years to come.

All profits from this event will be donated to Palmerston North’s Women’s Refuge.
