2021 Annual Quaker Lecture "Stories of belonging: A journey across Aotearoa"
2021 Annual Quaker Lecture
The 2021 Quaker Lecture will be delivered by Anjum Rahman and is entitled; “Stories of Belonging: A Journey Across Aotearoa”.
During 2020, Inclusive Aotearoa Collective Tāhono held conversations with hundreds of Kiwis from many diverse backgrounds about their experiences of belonging. Everybody had a story to tell, whether it was a person with disabilities, a non-binary teenager, a mum struggling with post-natal depression or a migrant worker. Anjum will be speaking about what they said, and what we can do to make Aotearoa even better.
Anjum is the Project Lead of the Inclusive Aotearoa Collective Tāhono, a project designed to create a place to belong for all Kiwis. She is a chartered accountant with over 25 years’ experience, and also commits to various volunteer roles in the community.
She was a founding member of the Islamic Women’s Council of New Zealand, an organisation formed in 1990 to bring Muslim women together and represent their concerns. She was also involved in setting up Shama, Ethnic Women’s Trust, which provides social support to women from a range of backgrounds.
Anjum regularly appears in the media as a spokesperson for the Muslim community in Aotearoa.
The free public lecture is scheduled for Saturday 15th May, at Kauri Hall, El Rancho, Waikanae, starting at 7pm. Refreshments provided.
