Huge congratulations to our amazing Trustee Joan Withers for winning the Supreme Award at this year’s Women of Influence Awards. Joan is such a valued member of our team. She gives so much of her time and energy to The Tindall Foundation and to championing the causes we support.

The awards celebrate the leading women who are shaping the future of New Zealand.  Joan was presented with her award at the Women of Influence Awards gala dinner at SkyCity last night.  Judges said her work championing board diversity and striving to close the gender gap resulted in a unanimous decision.

The Women of Influence Programme is designed to identify, recognise and celebrate the 100 most influential women shaping New Zealand across 10 categories: Arts and Culture, Board and Management, Business Enterprise, Community and Not for Profit, Diversity, Global, Innovation, Public Policy and Rural.
