Impact Wahine Conference

A conference aimed at empowering wahine who want to make real change in their communities is coming to Hawera next week.

Designed to cultivate an environment of open and inspirational dialogue, participants and speakers alike will be treated to a day of fun, challenges and motivation.

The free inaugural Impact Wahine Forum and Luncheon kicks off at 8.30am Monday 25 September at the TSB Hub.

Keynote speaker Liliana Gil Valletta will be joined by IronMaori founder Heather Skipworth, PKW Chair Hineangi Raumati, and Iwi leaders Debbie Ngarewa-Packer and Puna Wano-Bryant.

An award-winning American-based entrepreneur, Valletta helps business leaders unlock the power of today's diverse marketplace with research, creativity and purpose.

Ngarewa-Packer, who is also hosting the event in partnership with the Wahine Toa Project, said attendees will hear from wahine who are the movers and shakers making a positive impact.

Wahine Toa Project was started by Nancy Gilbert, wife of former U.S. Ambassador Mark Gilbert.

"This high-energy conference is focused on empowering wahine to reach their full potential,” Ngarewa-Packer said.

"If you are a wahine wanting to make a difference, or desire to make an impact, then this forum is for you."

Tickets have sold out.
