Embracing Te Ao Māori in the workplace

Matariki is a national public holiday celebrating Mātauranga Māori (Māori knowledge) and Te Ao Māori (a Māori world view).

Join us for our special Matariki Business + Upskill with architect Peter Wynyard to discover how celebrating and honouring cultural heritage can enhance workplace practices and contribute to a more inclusive and equitable environment.

Peter says being Māori in a predominantly non-Māori working environment has unique challenges. He wants to conceptualise Māori and Pacific aspirations and advocate for more representation in architecture and engineering. He’s also driven to help rangatahi (young people) discover a love of architecture.

Join us for breakfast: 7.30am-8.30am, Wednesday 26 June at Visions Restaurant. Free, all welcome.
