New Zealand is a bicultural nation and the next generation of Kiwi leaders must have the skills, knowledge and connections to be comfortable in Te Ao Māori.
A New Zealand that understands Te Tiriti, the confiscation of land from Māori during the New Zealand Wars and the complex and unfinished Treaty settlement process is a New Zealand that can confidently forge its place in the world.
In addition, Māori have their own story in Asia, a story that is often not well known to non-Māori. Familial and historic links jostle with trading relationships that range from long-standing connections to fledgling ventures in fashion, tech and super foods.
The hui will be an opportunity to connect with Te Ao Māori and hear about Māori engaging with Asia. You will also learn how you can show leadership in this area and connect with other members of the Leadership Network.
Although you will be expected to bring a curious mind and an open attitude, you won’t be expected to be an expert and relevant reading material will be provided prior to the hui.
The goals of the hui are to:
- equip members of the network with a broad knowledge of Te Ao Māori, specifically with regard to Asia
- provide leadership opportunities for members through their active development of the programme and their participation in leading the various sessions of the hui
- provide an opportunity for members to interact and get to know each other to strengthen the network.
