Co-Presidents’ Message


We are sad to announce that Steph Fink has resigned from her role as General Manager of the YWCA AotearoaNZ for professional reasons.

The Board acknowledges her significant contribution and service to the YWCA movement in AotearoaNZ. In the last 5 years our organisation has faced challenges and undergone much change and Steph has provided stability to the organisation, and supported the Board in the setting the new strategic direction.

We really value and appreciate her calm, thoughtful, and supportive approach, and the commitment she has shown to progressing the YWCA’s vision for young women in this country. We wish her all the very best for the future. Steph’s last day with the YWCA will be the 4th of May.

For any queries in the meantime, you can contact either of us on the main YWCA contact details (telephone 04 384 8117 or email, and of course you are welcome to email or phone us directly (details below).
