Women’s Fund Speaker Series Continues: “Give a little of yourself to others.”
As part of the work we do with the Women’s Fund, Julia from our team has been chatting to some of our city’s strong female leaders. We’re particularly interested in highlighting the mahi of these inspiring women as they do their part to steer us through this Covid19 crisis.
Today, we’re sharing her conversation with Abby Suszko, Chair of the Aviva board. She is an incredibly knowledgeable women who reminds us:
“We can empower people to live free from violence during such disasters. Specifically, in Ōtautahi, we need to continue to focus on putting whanau at the centre of decision-making. Bring the tolerance of family commitments we see occurring currently while staff work from home back into the workplace. Get to know your neighbours, your friends, talk and share, be available. Priorities in life should not be self-centred but should still have some focus on caring for the self - a subtle difference. Make a difference in communities as you can; join community groups. Give a little of yourself to others.”
