Fulbright New Zealand and the Fulbright New Zealand Alumni Association invite you to a free panel discussion seminar on the topic of ‘Mind the (gender) gap: Women’s equality in New Zealand and the Pacific’ with Fulbright alumni Horiana Irwin-Easthope, Nicola Kean and Makerita Urale, and Public Service Association national secretary Erin Polaczuk.
New Zealand led the world in giving women the vote, but more than a century later it is dropping in international indexes measuring the gender gap. Fulbright and Leadership New Zealand bring together a range of young alumni to discuss why and where to from here for women in New Zealand and the wider Pacific region.
Horiana Irwin-Easthope (Ngāti Porou, Ngāti Kahungunu, Rakaipāka) is a solicitor at Kahui Legal. She was the 2013 Fulbright New Zealand-Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga recipient and has a Masters of Law from Harvard University.
Makerita Urale is a Samoan-born writer, theatre producer and documentary filmmaker. She was the 2010 Fulbright-Creative New Zealand Pacific writer-in-residence.
