New Professionals - Meet the Chiefs Breakfast with Lil Anderson


Join the IPANZ New Professionals Leadership Team for a light breakfast, intravenous coffee and the opportunity to meet Lil Anderson, Chief Executive of Te Arawhiti - Office for Maori-Crown Relations.

Come at 7.15am for breakfast, the speaker will start at 7.45am, it's an early start but well worth the effort to hear Lil discuss first-hand her career path, highlights and challenges. There will be the opportunity to ask questions and engage with Lil as well.

About Lil Anderson:

Lil Anderson (Te Rarawa and Ngāpuhi) is the Chief Executive of the Office for Māori Crown Relations – Te Arawhiti (Te Arawhiti). She is originally from Panguru in the Hokianga.

Te Arawhiti is a departmental agency that reports to the Minister for Māori Crown Relations: Te Arawhiti, the Minister for Treaty of Waitangi Negotiations and the Minister responsible for the Marine and Coastal Area (Takutai Moana) Act.

Te Arawhiti was established to consolidate a range of distinct but related government functions that support Māori Crown partnerships and help the Crown build on the sense of renewal in Māori Crown relations established through the Treaty settlement process.

Over the past seven months, Lil led a key workstream within the COVID-19 All of Government Unit in DPMC called ‘Caring for Communities’. It was aimed at supporting our nation's most vulnerable groups within communities and beyond into recovery.

With more than 25 years’ experience spanning the public service and wider state sector, Lil’s authentic leadership, vision and strategy, problem solving and drive for results have been key features of her career.
