Featuring You in 2020!

We thank the U.S. Consulate in New Zealand for supporting impactmania's Women of Impact program. Paksy interviewed 12+ impact makers in New Zealand. A number of women from the global network flew out to New Zealand for an intense week of personal and professional work and development.

I am a scientist. I did my PhD, and I love new innovations. I love looking at new ways of doing things. What is the current research? What can we do with hidden costs commercialized things?

As a Pacific person we really do move through these spaces or in our career knowing that we are part of a collective. What that means is the notions of our ancestors. For us, we totally use in contemporary life. Those things include what we call Vā. Vā is recognizing the relational space between people and objects. When there is a disturbance, they are Vā for us; we deal with it by saying we make sure that we pick up on those cues.

Join us: Women of Impact is going to New Zealand!

“The U.S. Consulate is committed to supporting programs that educate and empower women and girls. impactmania’s Women of Impact provides a powerful platform for women to share their stories with their peers and with the public in an effort to celebrate their work and inspire us all. We’re excited to help connect impressive women from the United States and New Zealand and shine a light on their successes.” – Katelyn Choe, Consul General at the U.S. Consulate in Auckland, New Zealand.
