Navigating through a sea of ego’s – nurturing relationships through vā spaces - Jeremy Faumuinā.  Always a highlight of the year we are excited to welcome Jeremy Faumuinā as our speaker for this year’s Lincoln Efford Memorial Lecture.

The theme of our talanoa/conversation will be about sharing our spaces together through an indigenous lens. This will highlight Jeremy’s work within the police and how justice and peace is weaved into his practice and how that is outworked in community here in Aotearoa and abroad.

 Jeremy has had significant leadership roles in a career spanning over two decades in Māori and Pasifika organisations, local communities and the Education sector.

Jeremy is a devoted father to 5 children and a fierce advocate of the Rainbow community. He understands community in the true sense of the word, and is just as comfortable contributing around a board table as he is supporting some families and children in the most disadvantaged and traumatised communities. An astute awareness on how to teu the vā (build and tend to relationships) has allowed him to work with various government agencies, Whānau ora, not-for-profit, business, schools, families and other community groups. A keen basketballer, lolly connoisseur and positive-straight-talking sums up Jeremy’s intent on changing lives for the better.
