How can we build hope, courage and aroha in a time of healing?

 

As a movement of leaders across the full diversity of Aotearoa, Leadership NZ is committed to building an inclusive society in which all people feel they belong - a society in which aroha, manaakitanga and kotahitanga underpin our lives.

We know that recent events in Otautahi, Christchurch, and some of the actions and commentary that has followed, have really shaken people’s beliefs about New Zealand, and raised important questions about who we want to be as individuals, communities and as a nation.

We believe that we must be daring to create change, be the change – daring to challenge and stamp out racism, bigotry and all forms of discrimination. We must learn more about each other. We must open our arms and hearts across the divides of our diverse communities. We must have the tough conversations, be courageous, be truth tellers and share stories.

 
 
 

So, how do we build hope, courage and aroha in a time of healing?

If you are ready to step into a daring leadership experience, we are inviting you to an evening of reflection, sharing and sense making.

In true Leadership NZ style, this session will be unlike any other; challenging you to truly think about your relationship with race and how it impacts you, your decisions and your spheres of influence.

The evening will be expertly facilitated by Louise Marra, Programme Director for the New Zealand Leadership Programme and Dr. Matthew Farry, Director of the South Pacific Institute for Courageous Conversation about Race, allowing you to explore unfamiliar territory with bravery and courage.

This experience will allow you to learn about yourself and also find new ways to have important conversations in your family, workplace and community to create a more tolerant and inclusive New Zealand.

Places are strictly limited, and tickets will sell fast.

 

 
Truly daring leaders must be prepared to be vulnerable and listen without interrupting. We need leaders with empathy, self-awareness and self-love because who we are is how we lead.
