Co-Convenor & Sector Rep - DHB
Kia ora wahine toa!
My name is Nancy McShane and I am one of two co-convenors for the PSA Women’s Network.
I’m extremely passionate about the Women’s Network, as I believe that when we lift up the women and children in our society, we lift everyone up!
It has been exciting and extremely rewarding to co-lead the Women’s Network committee as we have advocated on a variety of women’s issues. In particular, I am extremely proud of the work we have done on Equal Pay, Domestic Violence Victim’s Support Leave, Bereavement Leave for Miscarriage and Pay Transparency. To see the results of our efforts having a positive impact in the lives of PSA women members and their families is both empowering and incredibly satisfying!
Union work aside, in my free time, I enjoy catching up with family and friends. I also enjoy cycling, hill walking, and sing in a mixed choir!
Last but not least I have, for the past 8 years, been a mentor with Pillars Children’s charity. I hugely enjoy this, as it gives me a great sense of community involvement and the opportunity to make a real difference in the life of a child.
