Who is the iWahine Leadership Hui for?

The iWahine Leadership hui is a two-day leadership development hui for wāhine Māori who are ready to lead at a higher level. The hui programme will provide practical skills in personal and leadership development that will enable you to get unstuck, take charge of your professional destiny and position yourself as an influential wahine whom others will respect, listen to, buy from, and promote. Our aim for you is that you leave the hui inspired to use the skills you learned to take your seat at the table to influence positive outcomes and create a meaningful impact.

Kia tū teitei

Our theme is about stand out leadership.

"Great" doesn't cut it.

We need leaders that are stand-outs; people who cannot be compared to others because their distinctiveness defies any standard.


What I liked about the iWahine Leadership hui was...

"It was for Māori women, by a Māori woman, and turned out to be so much more."

"The speakers and their amazing stories. Making new networks."

"The content and diversity of speakers. The inclusion of different backgrounds and areas and the grounding in a Māori world view."

"The collective wāhine spiritual vibe combined with the business kaupapa. The valuable knowledge shared by wāhine was incredible and very inspiring."

"The people, the content, the range of expertise, how the programme unfolded offering times of engagement, well catered with all needs being met. In short, I loved everything about the hui."

"The content and diversity of speakers. The inclusion of different backgrounds and areas and the grounding in a Māori world view."

"Likeminded wāhine out in the world doing business. Sharing of ideas, experiences and knowledge. Kaupapa Māori Environment and attitudes in the room. On time and professional in its delivery. High caliber of participants and presenters. Wide mix of talents and skills and varied businesses. Te Ao Māori featured in most of the business initiatives. Identifying and encouraging the Māreikura / Goddess within. Interesting, modern and relevant kaupapa of the day."

"Hey Awhimai (love your name..it's just what you do). I returned home from the Hui inspired and ready to go ..."

Win at work, succeed at life and lead with confidence. Attending this hui will help you develop the leadership competencies you need to be, not just a good leader but, a stand out leader.

Don’t miss the opportunity to kōrero with other wāhine, expand your networks and make new friends.
