About Us


With a background in education and community, Jenny Magee worked across cultures for more than 30 years. She edited the 5th edition of New to New Zealand – Ethnic Communities in Aotearoa: A Handbook (2011) and wrote Here For Good: What New Arrivals Need to Fit In, Be Productive and Stay (2015). 

Jenny developed the Conversity cards and serviettes as a way of extending the conversations about our similarities and differences into the classroom and beyond. The cards are now widely used across New Zealand, as a wonderful tool for English language development and cross cultural understanding.
