National Council of Women New Zealand
April 2015 - Present (2 years)
The National Council of Women works towards a gender equal New Zealand and has been working for equality across the social, political and economic areas since 1896. NCWNZ has got 290 member organisations at either a national or local level, and 21 branches around the country.
Key aspects of activity include representing women’s voices and influencing key decisions and issues through research, discussions and submissions and education of people on the current state of gender equality, the need for action, and what they can do.
The National Council of Women is in a phase of strengthening and growth with the Board recently strengthening its national office and embarking on developing a strategic plan which will involve change to ensure it stays relevant.
