Busting the myths of homelessness

With Wellington on the brink of a housing crisis like that of Auckland, local charity DCM helps around 1000 people a year find and stay in housing, while also offering everything from dental and health clinics to a banking service. Wellington mayor Justin Lester and DCM director Stephanie McIntyre bust open some common misconceptions around homelessness and what’s needed to end it.

Mind Warriors’, the company behind JOLT Challenge, hosted a recent event where the triumphs and challenges of four women in leadership were put under the microscope. The panel discussion was attended by nearly 200 professionals and explored the role that self-intelligence (self-awareness and management) plays in the leadership journey.
