Suva- March 22– It is with overwhelming sadness that we at the Pacific Leadership Program (PLP) announce the untimely passing of our Advisory Panel member Dr. Teresia Teaiwa, in New Zealand on March 21.

Teresia was a friend,  colleague and  role model to the PLP team and to emerging leaders and academics throughout the Pacific  We have been privileged to have worked with her and are grateful for the sharp insights and expertise she so generously contributed to the program.

We at PLP extend our sincere condolences to Teresia’s family during this difficult time. We will continue to honour her and her love and commitment to the Pacific through our work.
