Hancine is an education leader, who strongly believes in the power of lifelong learning, overcoming obstacles to figure out your strengths, and harnessing what you learn for good.
Hancine’s ability to connect with learners and guide them along their journey comes from a combination of this diverse pool of learning, as well as the other projects and roles she’s taken on along the way, most recently as Education Director for the Master of Teaching & Education Leadership.
“If we truly want change then we have to be challenged and be comfortable being uncomfortable. We need leaders who are prepared to listen, prepared to be inclusive, prepared to take risks as well as being open to new ways of thinking and doing.”
