In the GWH Summer Series, ACFID’s Bridi Rice takes you inside the Canberra foreign policy community to ask one key question: what does increased poverty mean for Australian international affairs?
Welcome to Episode 03 of Good Will Hunters’ Summer Series, brought to you by Good Will Media. Today, in the third of this six-part series, our host Bridi Rice chats to Josie Pagani about how New Zealand walks the talk on development, foreign policy, and working with our Pacific family.
Josie is a communications consultant and political commentator, taking over the Director role at the Council for International Development in June 2016. She has a high-level understanding and experience in the aid and development sector, with her career including working as the communications manager for NZAID, and also for OECD DAC in Paris. Since returning to Wellington from Paris in 2007 Josie has managed a public affairs consultancy with a number of clients both in New Zealand and abroad.
Josie offers an honest insight into the importance of cultural connection and integration, and calls for urgent amplification of Pacific voices to move the development sector towards a relationship of equals.
