“Jen Margaret is a leader in her field. She brings clarity, confidence and results to organisations seeking a way to operationalise Te Tiriti o Waitangi. Her writings on working as an ally of indigenous peoples, coupled with her research and facilitation skills, have provided invaluable insight for our staff seeking to engage in a respectful and purposeful manner with the Treaty partnership.”
Helen Te Hira, Auckland Council

“The outcome [of Jen’s workshop] for us is a Trust with a much greater understanding of what the Treaty really is about, and what its significant relevance is for us as a grantmaker.”
John Prendergast, Community Trust of Southland

“It’s hard mahi being honest within our own personal and organisational Treaty journeys. Jen has made change possible and I’ve seen the impact of her work in Community Law across the motu.”
Julia Whaipooti, Community Law Centres Aotearoa

“Jen has an amazing craft in creating spaces for people to be open and honest with themselves and therefore learn.”
Madeline King, JustSpeak

“Jen ran a wonderful day and half workshop with our team, who were highly engaged and enlightened and more importantly finished the workshop being both challenged and enthused about how we as individuals and as a organisation respond to Treaty issues and obligations.”
Robyn Steel, Manager City Partnerships

Working as allies will be of considerable value to all who work with Maori and other indigenous peoples in the social services, health sectors, education, police and justice.”

“Jen brings vast experience and insight to the practical issues organisations face when hoping to become Treaty-based, and still she keeps sight of the personal feelings and histories that Treaty discussions bring to the fore. Her perceptiveness and good humour make difficult conversations possible.”
