Adele Thomas

Profile image of Adele Thomas I’m a born and bred Aucklander, a mother and a grandmother. I’d describe myself as kind, adventurous and loyal. I like to spend my time with family and friends, usually over good food, good wine and good music. I love getting out on the water for a kayak, a sail, or to go fishing. Being on or near the sea is my happy place.

I’m fortunate to work for an organization that cares about equity and feel privileged to be in a position where I am able to support those values and help to make a difference in people’s lives.

My biggest take away from the Be. Leadership programme is courage. I have learned so much, not only from the programme itself, but from my fellow participants who are courageous every day and who I am so proud to be able to call my friends.
