Our Patron


Dr Judy McGregor has become the first ever patron of our Centre. Many of you will be familiar with Judy’s work as the Equal Employment Opportunities Commissioner at the New Zealand Human Rights Commission from 2003-2012. Just prior to finishing her second term as EEO Commissioner Judy produced ‘Caring Counts’, an inquiry into the aged care workforce, most of whom are women. The report found the women earn very low wages for difficult work that was "grossly undervalued". Judy took up a position at the Institute of Public Policy at AUT in December 2012 as Head of the School of Social Sciences and Public Policy.
