The Global Women Team sends our warmest congratulations to Dr Hinemoa Elder and Dr Jackie Blue, both Global Women Members, on their royal honours this week.
Dr Elder has been made a member of the New Zealand Order of Merit for her services to psychiatry and Māori. Child psychiatrist Hinemoa Elder says she’s deeply humbled and overwhelmed to have been recognised in this year’s Queen’s Birthday Honours.
Dr Jackie Blue has spent her career advocating for women. She says becoming a member of the New Zealand Order of Merit is an acknowledgement of the women she has fought for.
