The annual Women of Influence Awards were held in Auckland last night. The awards celebrate the stories of women who are making a difference to the lives of New Zealanders, and focus on the work Kiwi women are doing on the global stage. Micro-biologist Souixsie Wiles took out the Supreme Award, in part for her communication during the covid-19 pandemic. This year's lifetime achievement award winner is Luamanuvao Dame Winnie Laban and she spoke with Nathan Rarere.
