New Zealand Fellowship

September - November 2018
Register
Designed specifically for mid-senior leaders in social change, the Aotearoa Fellowship will super-charge your skills and energy, help you gain further confidence as a social change leader, and connect you with a community of your peers from across Aotearoa.

Over two cohorts in 2016 and 2017, 40 fellows have completed the fellowship in New Zealand, from organisations such as Hāpai Te Hauora, Amnesty International, Mapu Maia (Pacific Arm of the Problem Gambling Foundation), 350 Aotearoa, the Public Service Association, the Blind Foundation, ActionStation, Safe, JustSpeak and the National Council of Women.

In 2017, NZ fellows were joined by five fellows from Australia, and the program remains open to Australians based outside Sydney and Melbourne. We look forward to welcoming a new cohort in 2018!

2016 Fellowship Cohort

Members of the 2016 Fellowship Cohort

The Aotearoa fellowship is bookended by two intensive 4-day retreats, with five interactive expert webinars in between. The first retreat will be within 2 hours drive of the Auckland CBD.

For the past three years the Fellowship has been run in collaboration between Hāpai te Hauora Maori Public Health and the Centre for Australian Progress. At the completion of the fellowship, all participants join a remarkable Trans-Tasman network of change-makers.

“Ma te whakatau ka mohio, ma te mohio ka mara, ma
te marama ka matau, ma te mohio ka mara, me”

By discussion comes understanding, By understanding comes light, By light comes wisdom, By wisdom comes life.

It is the best value for time and money programme I have ever been on. It is absolute must if you are serious about social change and progress. Dianne Rogers

This is a really comprehensive programme that really quickly shows you how much you don’t know but just as quickly also helps provide tools to tackle those gaps and keep you positive. Andrew Chick

I have gained an invaluable experience by attending the NZ Fellowship – not only the new friendships with fellow campaigners but also the boost in confidence in my own work. I highly recommend it. Pesio Ah-Honi Siitia, Mapu Maia
