    In my last update I welcomed two of the three new managers in the Office of Ethnic Communities – Natasha Narayan, the Manager of our Planning, Systems and Services team, and Tayyaba Khan, the Manager for our Community Engagement team.  Tayyaba is based in Auckland.  I’m pleased to say that Natasha and Tayyaba will now be joined by Diana Solomon as the Manager for the Policy and Research team – which completes the leadership team for the Office for Ethnic Communities.  Diana comes to OEC from her role as Principal Advisor Strategy and Planning in the Strategy and Governance Group of the Department of Internal Affairs, although she has had extensive experience in policy work previously including in the Treasury.
