As our Women’s Fund speaker series continues, We're excited to share another conversation with a fabulous female leader in Otautahi, Michelle Sharp.
Here is your reminder of the importance of having a will and keeping it current!
Otautahi Christchurch has a proud tradition of women facilitating ground-breaking societal change. In order to recognise the women of the past, and the ensure that this proud legacy continues, we formed a fund to support women and girls who are change makers.
Join us for high tea at the Canterbury Club where we will announce and celebrate the 2020 award recipients with guest speaker Minister Poto Williams. Part of the ticket price covers the costs and the rest goes to next year’s recipients so it’s a constant flow of ongoing support for our next generation of female leaders in the city.
The Christchurch Foundation Women’s Fund isn’t only about supporting female leaders with grants. We are also drawing on Ōtautahi Christchurch’s proud legacy of change-makers, like Kate Sheppard, to fight for social equity.
Women’s Fund Grants Now Open: Calling all female champions, campaigners and change-makers! We’re thrilled to announce that it’s that time of the year again, where we can start searching for another three fabulous Wahine working at the grassroots in our city to inspire future female leaders.
As we wrap up our Women’s Fund speaker series, our Patron, Mayor of Christchurch Lianne Dalziel tells us about the importance of Women’s leadership in a post disaster environment. “One thing I’ve learnt is that crisis always produces opportunity. That’s opportunity to do things differently.”
We have the pleasure of sharing Julia’s latest conversation with the Honourable Poto Williams, MP for Christchurch East and Minister for the Community and Voluntary Sector.
We set up our Women’s Fund in part to highlight the insights from inspiring female leaders. So now that we’re emerging from Covid19, it’s more crucial than ever to hear from leaders like Minister Poto.
