Kiriwaitingi Rei (Te Arawa, Ngāti Awa ki Rangitaiki, Ngāti Toa Rangatira) has worked in governance for almost 10 years. Her mahi has seen her practice as a Solicitor and working for a post settlement iwi investment company before becoming the Chief Executive of Māori Investments.
She recently became an independent director for the Bay of Plenty Rugby Union, the first wahine to be appointed to the board in its 108 year history.
In this episode we talk about smashing stereotypes on the roles of women, the need for diversity of thought as well as gender balance and age representation on our governance boards and, what it takes to be a woman in leadership today.
I absolutely love what I do. I hope that through compassion and empathy that I can be the kind of boss that I wish I had.
