Karen Scott

 

CEO

 

Karen started working in the disability sector when she was 17, and has always believed that every individual no matter what their circumstances, has the right to a “life like any other”. This is one of the reason why taking up the job at Enrich+ in early 2017 fits so perfectly with her. She believes that her values match with the vision and values of Enrich+, which makes it an organisation that she is proud to work for.  Karen is a strong advocate for working in collaboration with others to maximise outcomes and increase capability. She has experience in the area of disability and harm minimisation for safer communities both in New Zealand and abroad.  She has worked in both Central and Local government and the not for profit sector and has a passion for bringing individuals and organisations together to pool resources and skills for improved outcomes.
