Diversity in the Public Sector – but are we ready for it?

This session shares ten years’ worth of learnings in the Public Sector from a Pacific woman’s perspective – the good the bad and the blessings.

Having worked in a population Ministry, a large mainstream government Ministry and a Crown Entity: what are the things that have made the biggest difference in her career and the work to improve government’s contribution to Pacific communities and for Pacific communities to thrive? Has the Public sector changed from a diversity perspective?

The Samoan saying goes, E sau le fuata ma lona lou – Each season/crop brings its own tools. Have we got the right tools to both nurture and reap the rewards of diversity?
