Erin Roxburgh

Future Director Intern

Erin Roxburgh joined the board as a future director in 2023. Erin is a lecturer in the School of Management at Victoria University of Wellington and is in the final leg of her PhD. Erin’s research areas are in Māori Governance and Sport Management. Erin is also a Board Member of Women in Sport Aotearoa, having held that position for the past three years having been a part of the formation of He wahine toa kei te kokiri (WISPAs rōpu) and Whanake o te Kōpara with the Shift Foundation.

Erin still represents New Zealand in both Indoor and Beach Handball. She was a part of the team that took the country’s first ever win over Australia in the history of New Zealand Handball and was a bit of the first team sent to represent New Zealand in the Asia Handball Federation Champs in 2018. She also was awarded Victoria University Māori Sportsperson of the year in 2021. Erin is advocate within her sport, having provided commentary into a global debate on women being forced to wear bikinis to play Beach Handball by the International Handball Federation, a rule which has now since been changed.
