Obama Praises Maori Women In Leadership

Former United States President Barack Obama has praised the number of Maori women in leadership. During his meeting with members of Wahine Toa, an organisation representing Maori leaders in numerous industries, Obama commended the number of Maori women contributing to New Zealand’s growth.

“A big mission for the foundation is to lift up women’s voices,” Obama said in a video released by the Obama Foundation revealing the first footage of the event. “The fact we are seeing so many Maori women who are already making contributions and pulling up those behind them, I think is a lesson to teach.”

Deirdre Otene, member of Wahine Toa, said the former leader brought “the real him to the conversation, he brought his visions, his dreams, and, more importantly, how we can work together in the future”.
