Pou Menetia – External Relations Manager
As the External Relations Manager, a key focus of mine is coordinating Hui E!’s regular hui in Wellington, Auckland, Christchurch and other regions, strengthening relations with groups outside of the sector and supporting the exchange of information. It is important to me that I can add value to Hui E! and your work.
My experience in the not-for-profit sector ranges from facilitating small peer support groups for new mothers, to running the national office of the United Nations Association of New Zealand. Prior to that, I worked in international education for many years, both in the private and public sector. I hold a first class honours in International Business Management, and have been studying towards a Diploma in Early Childhood and Adult Education, as part of my own journey of raising two children. I also recently joined Te Wānanga o Aotearoa and am studying te reo Māori.
