Global Women and PwC proudly present a nationwide speaker series inspiring us to create a better, more equal and inclusive world.

Hear six remarkable speakers from diverse backgrounds and industries as they share their personal perspectives on the theme #EachforEqual and how they are each contributing to a more balanced world.

Join us in Christchurch and hear from:

Annah Stretton In 2013 Annah Stretton set up RAW (Reclaim Another Woman) to help break New Zealand’s ever-growing cycle of intergenerational offending, educational underachievement, persistent poverty and violence for a group of disadvantaged women. Through inclusion, community and opportunity, RAW is building hope, purpose and prosperity one woman at a time.

Dame Denise L'Estrange-Corbet Co-founder of renowned New Zealand fashion brand WORLD, Dame Denise L'Estrange-Corbet DNZM is also an Ambassador for Diabetes NZ, the Mental Health Foundation, and is the IHC Art Awards Ambassador. She has shown a huge commitment to people with disabilities - including artists - and has been instrumental to the growing success of the IHC Art Awards. In 2019, to celebrate WORLD's 30th year and her 10 years of working with the IHC Art Awards, WORLD launched the 'WORLD Legacy Project', with the profits from this, going to the super talented IHC Artists.

Laura Douglas Laura Douglas is an advocate for the mental health of young women and founder of Southern Girl Finishing School where she hosts workshops for young girls teaching them a series of practical skills like changing a tyre, cracking a stock whip, clay-bird shooting and learning how to secure loads with strops and tie downs. Laura is also the founder of Real Country Farm, a place where visitors can experience an authentic farming experience.

Tupa’i Peter Peilua Tupa’i ‘Pete’ Peilua was one of the stars of the Global Women ‘Kiwi Dads’ photographic exhibition in 2019 - featuring 13 stay-at-home dads and promoting men and women as equal carers who deserve equal access to paid parental leave. Around 30,000 Kiwi women took paid parental leave in 2017, while the figure for men was an abysmal 300. When his second daughter was four months old, Pete left his job as a Principal Policy Advisor with NZQA to be the stay-at-home-parent for both their young daughters while his wife went back to full time employment. It was a move over which he experienced no regrets and very many rewards.

Daisy Lavea-Timo — Charged with keeping a finger on the pulse of youth engagement and youth development across the South Island, Daisy is the Southern Regional Manager for the Ministry of Youth Development - a woman who knows our youth and what makes them both succeed, and struggle. With a background in roles across NGO, government, education and sport, Daisy is a woman of many talents - she’s also an accomplished poet, rugby league prop, and a producer. Crowned the 2017 New Zealand Slam Poetry Champion, Daisy’s poetry ciphers around talanoa‐dialogues about identity, purpose and leadership - and she firmly believes in the power of words and holding the vā/spaces for people to share their own stories.

Susan Coleman — Susan has been the Chief Executive of GirlGuiding New Zealand for the past eight years and has led the organisation through a huge period of macro-change in order to achieve its goal of being the leading organisation for girls and young women in NZ. From mobilizing and empowering a volunteer base to the controversial decision to cease the sale of the iconic Guide Biscuit, Susan has risen to the challenge to create a strong and vibrant organisation that enables girls and young women to develop into confident leaders in their communities.
