On Wednesday, 5 October 2016 Wendy McGuinness spoke at the University of Auckland's politics hour.

The theme of the discussion was regarding the ethical dilemmas faced by policy advisors. Speakers were encouraged to share their experience or advice with students regarding how to be an 'ethical' policy adviser.

The ultimate aim of this session was to inspire students, but to also highlight the challenges that lie ahead, and allow students an insight into how political practitioners can achieve change but sometimes have to compromise.
