Pacific women gather for mentoring program in NZ

Women Members of Parliament from Fiji, Niue, Samoa, Tuvalu and a candidate from the 2014 Tongan election, have come together in Wellington with New Zealand Members of Parliament to participate in the first Pacific Commonwealth Women Parliamentarians Mentoring Programme. The Programme pairs an experienced New Zealand women Member of Parliament, with her Pacific counterpart for a long-term mentoring relationship. Over the course of this week the MPs will spend time sharing experiences and knowledge, and will establish a plan for keeping in contact, whether to ask for career advice or help with a parliamentary procedural issue.
