Ka mahi a Te Puni Kōkiri mā te Karauna kia tūhono tūturu, kia whaihua ngā hononga hoki me te iwi Māori.
Mā ngā hononga tōtika o te Māori me te Karauna e tutuki ai ngā whakaputanga katoa o Te Puni Kōkiri me ngā whakaputanga kāwanatanga whānui.
Mā te mahi tahi, me te whakaae tahi e whai whai hua ai te Karauna me te iwi Māori, ā, ka mahi ki te whakakaha i ngā hononga me te māramatanga.
Ngā Kaupapa me ngā Pānui
Kua rārangi mai ngā kaupapa me ngā pānui ki raro iho nei.
Empowering others through mana and respect
Jonno Webster (Ngāpuhi) is an Assistant Contract Manager for Downer at their Taranaki hub. He received an invitation to participate in Te Ara Whanake, the Downer Māori Leadership Programme through one of his colleagues.
Setting standards for herself and others around her
Ongelle Fincham (Ngāti Kahungunu) is a Programmer for Downer based in Wellington. Ever since she saw the company’s promotional video about Te Ara Whanake, the Māori leadership programme, she was keen to go on it. When she was asked to attend, her only answer was “Yes!”
Learning more about yourself to help others
Driver/operator Darryl Takerei (Ngāti Raukawa) works for Downer in the Taranaki region. In 2015 he completed the Downer Māori leadership programme, Te Ara Whanake, and found that he learned more about himself than he expected.
Growing Māori wahine leaders
I was part way through my diploma studying civil engineering and I felt I needed practical experience.
Te Ara Whanake programme changed me
I want others to be inspired by my journey, to go for it, and not be hesitant or let fear get in their way.
