Register now for the CTU Women's Conference
The Council of Trade Unions' Women's Conference is an opportunity to honour our union sisters, eat and talk, network, socialise, see films, agitate, advocate, meet old friends and allies and make new ones.
It is a biennial event (occurring every two years), and this year it will take place at the Michael Fowler Centre in Wellington July 12-13.
This year's theme is "Wāhine Toa: Organising for Change".
Some great key note speakers are confirmed:
- Julie Anne Genter, The Minister for Women
- Tania Te Whenua, the acting legal counsel to the CTU and PSA on the Mana Wāhine Kaupapa Inquiry
- Saunoamaali'i Dr Karanina Sumeo, the new Human Rights EEO Commissioner
