The Mana Moana Experience

It makes us very excited that this new Pacific leadership initiative is on its way. Focusing on mid-career Pacific candidates, this year-long specialist programme will develop effective leaders through the vitalisation and mobilisation of indigenous Pasifika language, knowledge, values, culture, ways of knowing and viewing the world.  Leadership NZ and Mana Moana programme director Karlo Mila is aiming for a December 2017 launch.  

More information about the programme and how to apply is on the Leadership NZ website


Pacific CEOs Network

On Friday 14 July, Foundation North hosted a Pacific Chief Executives network meeting, where participants were joined at lunchtime by the Minister for Pacific Peoples Hon. Alfred Ngaro.

If you’re a CE (or equivalent) for one of our Pacific-led grantee organisations, get in touch with us so we can tell you more. The network’s primary purpose is to provide peer-to-peer support between executive role holders.  To find out the next date, contact our Pacific Strategy Manager, Janitta.
