Not-for-profits and charities
Guidance and resources specifically for charities and not-for-profits.
To support the vision for all community organisations in Aotearoa New Zealand to be well governed, Community Governance NZ and the Institute of Directors (IoD) have formed a new partnership. This collaboration aims to strengthen and support the community governance sector with best practice expertise of the IoD.
We are offering a mentoring opportunity for 25 teina (mentee) chairs to deepen their leadership in a structured, supportive environment through connection with an experienced tuakana (mentor) chair.
The concept of Tuakana Teina is a Māori values-based principle of ako (two-way learning), which draws upon shared experience, knowledge and support.
Successful teina (mentees) will be matched with an established community board chair tuakana (mentor) for a 10-month programme of one-to-one mentoring (usually six to seven sessions).
Mentoring sessions will be enhanced through a number of online and in-person events to connect with the other teina (mentees) in the programme and hear from governance experts on relevant topics.
Teina (mentees) will also receive complimentary access to the online IoD Governance Essentials and Finance Essentials training programmes during the programme period (a value of $1188 per person).
To launch the programme, we are privileged to have five inaugural chairs with vast experience across the community sector who will be participating tuakana (mentors): Alan Isaac, Dame Kerry Prendergast, Mele Wendt, Prabha Ravi and Rawiri Bhana.
We are holding a launch event online at 12.00pm on Thursday 21 October – join us to hear from our inaugural tuakana and find out more about how the programme will work.
Applications open Thursday 21 October 2021 and close 5pm on Thursday 18 November 2021.
Frequently asked questions and Terms and Conditions will be available on this page on Tuesday 19 October. If you have any queries regarding the programme please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
