As one of the youngest Chief Executives ever appointed in the New Zealand Public Service, Jo Cribb invested her time in the Ministry for Women spearheading issues for women. Formerly the Deputy Children’s Commissioner, author of the Government’s Green Paper on Vulnerable Children, director of IHC and two school boards of trustees, she has a doctorate in public policy and works internationally as a director of Volunteer Service Abroad.
In 2016, Jo was a finalist in the New Zealand Women of Influence Awards and in 2014 was one of three recipients of a Westpac Leadership Fellowship.
Jo is the proud mother of two and referees their Saturday morning sport, bakes cupcakes and sews Scout badges onto blankets.
