Pasifika Futures CEO Debbie Sorensen in Leaders Like You

“Playing a bigger game

Debbie Sorensen, Chief Executive of Pasifika Futures, is uncompromising in her commitment to improve the social and economic outcomes of Pacific Island families and communities. Her forthright approach and willingness to say what she thinks may not always make her popular, but it’s a price she’s willing to pay to make a difference to those she serves.”
