It will be led by former rugby league coach Graham Lowe.
Other members include former Black Ferns captain Dr Farah Palmer, University of Otago director of Maori development Tuari Potiki, addiction expert Professor Max Abbott, lawyer and district health board member Sandra Alofivae, and the Advertising Standards Authority chief executive Hilary Souter.
