Ko wai? Who am I?
He mihi nui ki ōku iwi, hapū, Ngā Puhi, Ngāti Hine, Ngāti Kahu, Patu Koraha. I am surrounded by, supported and loved by my tupuna, ancestors, past, my present kuia/kaumātua, whānau, whānui, and my uri, my future to come.
Sara Cole Stratton LLB
It is with great pride that I share my Māori culture, our depth and breadth of thinking, feeling and experience at this time of great change in the world.
Life and my children have been my greatest teachers, mainly the struggles. One day I will share with you my ‘other’ CV, the one we think we could never share with potential bosses or clients, yet are the attributes that gives us our uniqueness, resilience, adaptability and innovation. How to capture the data points and the story is HOW we will create an inclusive, diverse and sustainable future.
That is how to harness power for ‘GOOD.’
