Global role for wānanga boss
The deputy chief executive of Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi has been head-hunted to work for a new international organisation set up to solve systemic issues such as health, social, economic and racial inequity.
Yvonne Evie O’Brien will be the inaugural programme director at the Rhodes Trust’s Atlantic Institute based at Oxford University in the United Kingdom.
Last year she was made a fellow of the Atlantic Fellows for Social Equity, which aims to improve the well-being of communities in Australia and the Pacific by drawing on the knowledge and expertise of indigenous people.
She says the institute’s aim is to support collaboration among leaders around the world to address complex social problems with the goal of fairer, healthier and more inclusive societies.
