Heathy Homes Hikoi - 1st board meeting!

Big updates from Hīria Te Rangi, Kaiwhakahaere at Whare Hauora.

Hīria has had her first formal board meeting with her Directors: Amber Craig, Jay Daly, Dianne Minee - always good to communicate where the organisation is and where it should be heading.

And then Hiria has been out and about speaking

"The Power Of A Grandmother" TEDxWellington - see the embedded video at the bottom of this article.

Hīria also spoke at #JAFAC , "How Whare Hauora product development is driving the decolonisation of data collection and management." Why, "why" matters. In a World where everyone is connected, we assume that our personal data is being collected, managed and on-sold. It has become naturalised, that this is the fee we must pay in order to use the service. But what if it wasn't?

We learn that the sensor hardware is changing in the future to include little LED screens making a massive UX difference. And finally Raj and Hīria discuss how funding for a "non-traditional tech/data" company is very tough, but Hīria is a tough wahine! Get amongst it on the Whare Hauora PledgeMe campaign.

Listen to her latest story, it's gold and we're sure those of you with startups can totally related ...

Hīria (Ngāti Porou, Tūwharetoa) is Kaiwhakahaere (CEO) of Whare Hauora. Hīria grew up by the Whanganui River about as far away from her 20 year tech background as you can get. There she learnt the importance of whānau and community and the support you need in order to be that weirdo kid and not change.
