Guest Speaker, Dame Lowell Goddard

Our guest speaker, the Hon Dame Lowell Goddard, gave a wonderful talk at the Annual General Meeting on Thursday 26 July. She shared her personal insights from working on several high-profile commissions, including the Independent Police Conduct Authority, the United Nations Subcommittee on the Prevention of Torture and UK’s Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse in England and Wales.

Dame Lowell was supported by a lovely waiata sung by our own Featherston Wahine Singers, who meet at the Centre each Tuesday.
