About

“I have a passion for supporting change makers to do good in the world”.

Rachael Trotman - Weave

Weave is led by Director Rachael Trotman, supported by diverse and talented independent Associates.

My passion is to enable those working to transform and restore. I align with values and approaches that consider the primary role of humanity as being to nurture the rest of life, for the good of all people and our shared planet.

I am Ngāti Pākeha, with ancestry stretching back through the United Kingdom, Barbados and Europe. I am Mum to two girls and partner to Teina, who is from Aitutaki (Kuki Airani/Cook Islands). Our whānau lives in West Auckland, Aotearoa New Zealand.

I hold an MA Hons Sociology (University of Auckland) and a Post Graduate Diploma in Human Ecology (Open University, Edinburgh).

I have 20+ years’ experience in research, evaluation, writing and facilitation across the social and environmental sectors. I work mainly with community organisations, philanthropy, businesses, local and central government. I am experienced and comfortable working with people from all backgrounds and walks of life.
