My name is Anmar Taufeek. I am the Health and Safety, Environment and Quality Manager at Auckland Council. I’m also a member of PMI – PMP (Project Management Professional) and the Chairperson of The Good Deed Group.  The Good Deed Group is a group of female volunteers that are dedicated to giving back to the wider New Zealand community.  I am also Vice President of the Islamic Council of New Zealand.

I am a civil engineer originally from Baghdad, Iraq. I have been here for over 20 years, having immigrated with my family back in 1997.  I am interested in issues relating to gender equity, community and diversity, and keep myself motivated and optimistic through ongoing study and self-development.
