Listen to the panel discussion involving panelists - Dame Jacinda Ardern, the Hon Julie Bishop, Rena Owen and Bronte Campbell moderated by Laura Tingle on ANU TV YouTube channel.

On 10 August, MANA WĀHINE will celebrate women in leadership across politics, the arts, sport, and beyond, showcasing women who are breaking barriers and helping level the playing field for future generations.

Join four remarkable women for an inspiring discussion about their experiences as leaders in their respective fields:

  • Dame Jacinda Ardern, former Prime Minister of New Zealand,
  • The Hon Julie Bishop, ANU Chancellor and former Australian Foreign Minister,
  • Rena Owen, international award winning New Zealand actress and screen legend, and
  • Bronte Campbell, Australian dual Olympic Gold medallist and world champion swimmer.

The discussion will be moderated by award winning Australian journalist and chief political correspondent for the ABC's 7:30 program, Laura Tingle.

The event aims to amplify the positive focus generated during the FIFA Women's World Cup co-hosted by Australia & New Zealand 2023™ in July/August.

MANA WĀHINE is a Māori expression which means: women of strength or powerful women.

MANA WĀHINE has been designed and produced by the New Zealand High Commission in Australia with the support of the Australian National University.

The event has been made possible thanks to funding from the New Zealand Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) as part of its work to raise the profile of women and girls in sport and wider society, building from the FIFA Women's World Cup 2023™, co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand.
