Vivien Maidaborn

CEO of UNICEF NZ (New Zealand)

I love to work in places where people are generative and future focussed; where the best of business, social change and community come together to create increasing social justice. I am passionate about working with people who are engaged in social innovation and enterprise aimed at healing inequity.

My work experience includes CE roles with iconic NZ community organisations Relationships Aotearoa, and CCS Disability Action. I founded Lifetime Design, an accessibility qual-mark for houses and am co- founder of the very exciting Loomio Cooperative . In this role I have become passionate about shifting people’s natural interest and easy agreement to collaborate to the deeper cultural work of collaboration.

I am the Executive Director of UNICEF NZ, where I am seeking to combine learnings from technology innovation, fundraising expertise and systems management with the long standing United Nation’s brand credibility, ability to scale social change, and with muddy boots at the table, deliver better outcomes for the Worlds children.
