Rachel McNae PhD

Rachel is a member of the International Women Leading in Education group who meet bi-annually around the globe.  The work of the group draws on researchers and practitioners to illuminate, examine and when needed generate action on key issues which impact women leaders.  These clarified understandings can help determine the means by which researchers and teachers can further focus resources and attention, and illuminate the issues associated with the underrepresentation of women in educational leadership - an incredibly important aspect of social justice.   Further information about this group can be found at http://women-leading-education.com.

Rachel's research also involves engaging young women in leadership development opportunities. This includes using alternative development strategies such as visual ethnography, photo voice, appreciative inquiry and co-constructing integrated leadership curriculum.  

Rachel has supervised Masters of Educational Leadership postgraduate students at the University of Waikato in the areas of women and leadership in the Pacific. She is currently supervising doctoral research projects in the Pacific related to women's leadership.

In 2013 Rachel was awarded a national scholarship to attend the New Zealand Women in Leadership Development Programme in Wellington, New Zealand. 

Rachel presents to a number of  forums internationally and nationally focusing attention on women and leadership in organizations and communities. I
