Navigating Waves with Purpose | The Pacific Women’s Professional Business Network Board 2023-2024

November 9, 2023
New Board November 2023

As we set sail with a purpose, our new 2023-2024 board dives headfirst into a boundless sea of transformative actions/activities. This includes championing the 2024 IWD celebration, creating an enchanting series of interactive well-being books for Pacific children, advancing our partnership with DET, TAFE, VERTO & other NGOs in the second phase, nurturing the bonds of the Sunrise Sisterhood, and continuing our advocacy for mobilizing targeted resources for Pacific Communities, promoting gender equality and justice, listening to the voices of ‘Young Pacific Women’s Collective’, and creating spaces to encourage leadership in the realms of work and politics.

Since its inception in 2017, PWPBN has been fortunate to have a circle of friends who, even if they are not part of the board, have played a pivotal role in establishing a nurturing environment and providing ongoing support through their valuable advice and resources. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to:

  • Minerva Patu
  • Caroline Vuki
  • Lauina Grace
  • Rev Faaimata Havea
  • Mal Fruean
  • Maherau Arona
  • Selena Afeaki
  • Rev Tolorosa Taulaga
  • Seini Taufa
  • Joanne Matagi
  • Dr Olataga Doorbinnia

Your contributions have been instrumental in our journey, and we thank you for your unwavering support.

We are elated to announce the inaugural Young Pacific Women’s Symposium at the 2024 IWD, led by the Young Pacific Women’s Collective. This two-day celebration shines a spotlight on leadership, empowerment, and the rich tapestry of cultural connections.
