In this discussion facilitated by Dr Jim Mather, panellists Precious Clark, Hinerangi Raumati and Sir Rob McLeod focus on the critical elements of Māori governance and their relevance to organisations and businesses.

In this panel discussion we ask:

  • What are these critical elements and how can they be relevant to wider governance?
  • What role does Māori governance play in success of the wider economy of Aotearoa New Zealand?
  • What can we learn from these leadership approaches that are applicable to governance roles?
  • What are the benefits of introducing Māori protocols and perspectives onto boards?
  • Why and how should Te Tiriti o Waitangi principles be integrated into business strategies of both Māori and other entities?

Upon registering you will receive an email with a link and instructions on accessing the recording.
