About this Event


		International Women's Day Breakfast image

Join us at The Boat House at The Riverhead for a special early morning event and hear from some inspiring, change-making and determined women making a positive difference in our world.

The International Women's Day Breakfast was to have been held on 7 March, but was rescheduled due to Auckland's March COVID lockdown.

We are delighted to have Hon Priyanca Radhakrishnan, Minister for the Community and Voluntary Sector, Minister for Diversity, Inclusion and Ethnic Communities, Minister for Youth and Associate Minister for Social Development and Employment as one of our speakers.

The Minister has spent her work life advocating on behalf of people whose voices are often unheard – survivors of domestic violence, and migrant workers who have been exploited.

Another of our speakers is award-winning journalist Barbara Dreaver, TVNZ's Pacific Correspondent . For `18 years Barbara has been telling the stories of the Pacific.

Joining them is Waratah Taogaga (Ngāti Whatua), teacher and cultural advisor at Helensville Primary School and fierce advocate for helping our Māori tamariki succeed.

"My Māori culture has been my backbone in life," says Waratah, "I grew up in a mainstream school, lost in a system that didn’t support my learning style – but I was surrounded by many incredible teachers in my whānau and iwi. I became a teacher to make a difference for our Māori tamariki in mainstream school settings – I want them to succeed and reach their potential in all areas of school. "

This event is proudly hosted by Kindred Family Services, the social service agency serving northwest Auckland and South Kaipara. We nurture hope and healing by providing a range of services, from counselling, family support, youth work, food packs through the Kai Collective Te Awaroa, a women's refuge safe house and support and advocacy for men and women on their journey away from family violence.

Please take time to learn more about Kindred Family Services by watching the short video below.

We invite you to join us to celebrate the stories that are shaping our community into a place where everyone has the opportunity to live in safety and with hope and the knowledge that they do not have to go through this world alone.

A huge thanks to our friends Paula and Stephen and their wonderful team at The Riverhead for offering their beautiful venue for this event.

In the event COVID forces us to once again cancel the breakfast you will be issued with a refund.
