International speaker Vu Le is bringing his message about funding for equity and change to Aotearoa, New Zealand.


Dunedin Community Builders, Hui E! Community Aotearoa and Volunteering NZ are pleased to be hosting this internationally renowned speaker and funding equity advocate on a national tour from late September.


The tour will tackle the need to embed equity in the community funding sector. The message is clear that entrenched philosophical approaches to resourcing this sector need to change. 

To open the tour in Ōtepoti, Vu will officially launch Be the Change: Funding and Equity, at a community hui on Wednesday 28 September. He will be in conversation with several of our community champions as well as our audience.


Vu’s tour will continue with a Parliamentary event in Wellington | Te Whanganui-a-Tara and more events in Auckland | Tāmaki Makaurau. 

Ōtepoti event details

10am - 1pm, Wednesday, 28 September

Glenroy Auditorium, Free

Our grateful thanks

As well as our partner Hui E! Community Aotearoa, we would like to acknowledge the generous support of Dunedin City Council, the Mayor’s Fund, DIA Community Funding for Change, place-based community groups, Mercy Hospital, Otago Community Trust, and Webb Farry Lawyers.

Without their imagination and enthusiasm for this kaupapa, Dunedin Community Builders wouldn’t have been able to bring Vu here.
