There’s no doubt about it... these are challenging times for everyone.

We will all be aware by now that Covid-19 is going to change our lives for the foreseeable future. We know that New Zealand's Level 4 alert status will present difficulties for some, uncertainty for others, and we will all have to adjust to a new way of working.

GWN will also be working throughout these challenges, and we will continue to be a champion for women’s progress in the public sector. We know it will be tricky for some networks to operate in these circumstances. While in-person events will be cancelled for the time being, we are investigating ways that we may be able to bring you speakers, resources and information through our digital channels. Please stay connected with us through our website, newsletters, and LinkedIn to get the latest information. If you have questions or need support for your networks, please get in touch.

As we all come to grips with Covid-19 and its effect on our communities, we encourage you to keep up to date with the latest, verified information from the Covid-19 website, to look after yourselves and your families, and follow the advice of government.

GWN’s foundations are built on the strength of networks to raise awareness, build a sense of combined purpose and understanding, and give support to those who need it so that we can all thrive. Now more than ever, these are vital skills to share with colleagues, family and friends.

Kia kaha, kia atawhai, GWN whanāu!
