On 10 March 2021, the inspiring and insightful 'Women in Public Service Summit: Te Pua o Ngā Māreikura' was held virtually from Wellington. The Summit featured a diverse line up of speakers, across a wide range of topics and from a number of different agencies.

Attendees were able to ask questions of our speakers, and if speakers were unable to answer them on the day, the questions were passed on after the Summit. Their responses have been collated below. We thank and appreciate each of our speakers for taking the time to respond.

You can see the original event programme on the Auaha website. To see speaker Q&As, click the links below.
