Bi-cultural confidence is the foundation of successful cultural diversity and inclusion in your organisation.


Evidence shows that Māori people are still under-represented in senior leadership of organisations and over-represented in poor employment outcomes.


You can make a positive contribution to turning this around, starting with knowledge and understanding of what good looks like.


In this half day wānanga (workshop), participants will:

  • Identify key values important to Māori and discuss their commonalities with many cultures
  • Gain an overview of the loss and restoration of Māori language and culture in New Zealand
  • Learn how to create an environment that encourages all employees to explore the Māori world view and supports your Māori employees to bring their cultural selves to work


This three-hour workshop is an ideal introduction to bi-cultural confidence for all leaders, HR professionals, employees new to New Zealand or those who grew up here who would like to learn more.

It will be led by Michael Moka, Director of Indigenous Growth, supported by kaumatua (elders) from the local iwi (tribe). You will be part of a small group and encouraged to ask questions.
