The Forces Shaping Public Service Culture

This Event is Sold Out - please email if you would like to be added to a waitlist.

Whatever agency you look at, in the private, public and NGO sectors you will know that the internal culture is strongly shaped by the vision, the values, purpose and operating environment of each one. The context, the environment, in which they exist powerfully influences their culture.

Over 2020 IPANZ wishes to explore the organisational culture of the public service.

We want to ground this exploration in the context and drivers which shape the culture. We see two important underpinning features that makes the culture of the public service distinctive. One is the Westminster system with all its norms, principles and practices, and the other is the Treaty of Waitangi with its unique place in New Zealand.

We have two outstanding speakers to start this journey in thinking about the organisational culture of the service in which you work. This will give you new insights into why things are as they are, how they should or could be, and will enable you to understand and influence this culture.

About our Speakers:

Recently joining Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency as Chief Executive, Nicole Rosie believes transforming New Zealand’s road safety performance is critical to reducing harm to our people and to sustaining and accelerating New Zealand’s economic success.

Nicole’s leadership approach has enabled her to successfully lead strategic change, develop high performing cultures and deliver operational excellence. She is passionate New Zealander who cares deeply for the well-being of people.

Dr Kathie Irwin is currently on Secondment to the Office of the Children's Commissioner as the Chief Advisor Māori.

Kathie has over twenty years of experience working in senior management and governance roles across the Public, NGO, Iwi, Tertiary Education and Research Sectors. Across those roles she has championed diversity and inclusion, led Māori strategies and drawn from the latest research on cultural intelligence/cultural literacy to create new futures with people and organisations.

In this session, Kathie will explore how the Treaty of Waitangi offers a visionary framework for nation building, enabling Māori Development to generate unique models of organisational development and culture.
