Thanks to our speakers at the Impact Call last Friday, we had a really amazing in-depth session on these topics which you can listen to here:

• From 4:24, Kate Frykberg shared reflections on her journey: “Missteps and learning: personal experiences of Pākehā organisations wanting to support Māori aspirations and learnings along the way…”  Site: Kate Frykberg

• From 18:53, Sue Barker shared about her report which is now released looking at Charities Law Reform and what a world leading framework would be.  Charities-Law-Reform-Report-April-2022.pdf (

• From 33:24, Justin Stevenson shared about whether governance in Charities is harder than in for profit companies then we had some discussions in breakout rooms – really interesting topic to consider and will share the article he mentioned when it comes out!

Next call? – Well, because of the new Matariki holiday (hooray) which is the last Friday in June – will be Thursday 23rd at noon.  If you want a meeting invite, let me know.   Lined up to speak is Nicola Nation the CEO of The Ākina Foundation, and another person is being confirmed.  

Previous calls are all here:   It is a good resource point to hear from others – last time we heard from Kirsten Patterson (KP) the Chief Executive of the Institute of Directors of New Zealand (IOD), Maria English the CEO of Impact Lab and Ros Rice the Executive Officer of Community Networks Aotearoa.  The session before that was Sue McCabe the CE of Philanthropy New Zealand | Tōpūtanga Tuku Aroha o Aotearoa,  Kaye Maree Dunn sharing about He Kōrero podcasts focus on Te Tiriti o Waitangi and Michelle Berriman the Executive Director of Fundraising Institute of New Zealand.
