From Aotearoa New Zealand, Raewyn has forged a diverse leadership career spanning different sectors, including business, philanthropy, and education. Raewyn holds a Bachelor of Management Studies with Japanese from New Zealand, an MA in Education from the University of Central Lancashire, England, as well as an MSc in Global Governance and Ethics from University College London. Professionally she has been at the helm of organisations such as a Chamber of Commerce, a large grant-making Energy Trust, and served as Interim CEO of fast-growing, impactful social justice charities, including We Belong.
The former Chair of a Leadership Foundation, leadership in the for-purpose sector is something Raewyn is passionate about. Her favourite quote reflects her approach:
“Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space lies our freedom and power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and freedom.” — Victor Frankl, Man’s Search for Meaning.
Although her leadership journey is filled with global accomplishments, she states without hesitation that her greatest achievement has been shared with her husband in raising four resilient, funny, and caring young people who have embarked on their own journeys.
