Lay summary
There are lots of leadership examples across Aotearoa of wāhine rangatira who contribute to their whānau, iwi and hapū in governance. This project will investigate the experiences and mentorship of wāhine rangatira in governance and leadership roles. Gathering narratives through qualitative semi-structured interviews and photo-elicitation methods, my research will be grounded in kaupapa Māori and mana wāhine theory. Through this project I want to privilege wāhine perspectives in areas that are primarily considered the domain of men in order to contribute to Māori women leadership and mentorship.
