Chantelle Griffiths

Profle photo of Chantelle Griffiths I am curious, creative, a change-maker and committed to living an extraordinary life. I am constantly looking for new ways to improve my own life, and to make a tangible difference in the lives of those I meet. Helping others is a core part of who I am and how I show up in the world every day. Passionate, enthusiastic and results-driven, I am also quick to laugh and always there for those in need of support. I am an Aucklander, love my family and friends and am always looking for ways to give back to the community in any way I can. I love cooking, music, literature and deep conversation.
Serendipity has put me in the very unique position of being the only person in the country who does the job I do. I am extremely fortunate to be at the forefront of braille learning and literacy in New Zealand as a Braille Awareness Coordinator, and this enables me to work with an extremely diverse group of people from all around the country.
I believe leadership is dynamic and diverse, and that a leader isn't necessarily someone who always stands out from the crowd. I like to lead by example, with a growth mindset and a curious and open-minded attitude. I love collaboration and teamwork, because it's only through having meaningful relationships and conversations with others – whether it's sharing stories or new ideas – that we can truly make significant and long-lasting change in our society.
