Join the Whaikaha Nominations Database

Are you disabled?

Are you interested in governance?

Do you have any Board experience?

Do you have skills that might be useful on a government-appointed board?

If so, then Whaikaha’s Nominations Database might be for you.

We run a Nominations Database as part of Outcome Eight of the Disability Strategy, Leadership. Our mission is to help the government to diversify their boards by encouraging them to appoint disabled people to positions of leadership and increase the diversity of their boards, to better reflect the population they serve.

Register your interest by completing a short online questionnaire via Surveymonkey, making sure to include a copy of your CV, areas of interest and expertise. Throughout the year, government agencies will send out a list of board positions they have available and the team at ODI, will let those on the database know of the opportunity and how to apply.

The work surrounding the Whaikaha nominations database has been busy this year.  So far, nine requests for expressions of interest have been sent out to people on the nominations database, from six different agencies. Very often there is more than one position available.

At the time of writing, three more requests for expressions of interest are soon to be sent out and one person has been shortlisted for a position.

Whaikaha has started offering monthly meeting to those who are on the database, as a way for members to network and share ideas. Watch this space for further news about these meetings.
