Celebrating

Champions.

Campaigners.

Change-makers.

It's 125 years since women gained the hard-won right to vote in New Zealand, leading the world and profoundly transforming the role of women in our country.

Members of the Women's Fund want to celebrate the social change-makers of today - girls and women who have stood up and are making a difference in the lives of others.

What is the Women's Fund?

The Women's Fund is a community of generous people who want to harness women's power to make change happen.

Women are naturally connected, collaborative and generous. Their world is often centred around family and community. They want to help others to nurture, to make things better, fairer and more just. Their ability to make change happen for their family and community is powerful.

To celebrate the spirit of our original suffragists, and to mark the 125th anniversary of women's suffrage in New Zealand, we've made our first ever awards.

Women's Fund Retreat Day and 2018 Awards

On Sunday 16 September, shortlisted nominees for a Women's Fund Award were invited to a special Retreat Day.

 

 

Held at the Ellen Meville Centre, the day brought together more than 40 community change-makers in celebration of their work and gave the women a chance to connect, reflect, share and learn from one another.

 

 

We know that hardworking change-makers often don't get time to step back and reflect. As well as the opportunity to connect with other women and girls doing similar things, the day also included nurturing and tools for self-care.

 

Following the Retreat Day, the recipients of the first ever Women's Fund Awards were announced.

Congratulations to our ten champions of change!
