20 November 2017 midday release
Te Rau Matatini is proud to be launching 100 Māori Leaders website to contribute to the capacity building of the Māori health workforce. Māori leadership can be defined in various ways, in this resource Māori have identified whom they believe are leaders.
Māori are under represented among most professional groups who contribute to the health of New Zealanders in addition to holding significant leadership roles across services and sectors.
We are driving toward the hope – that in the Government’s commitment and with health sector aspiration there will be an increase in the number of Māori in the health workforce and Māori health leaders.
To build the number of Māori leaders – Māori must have access to Māori perspectives and experiences along their academic and career pathways; also their recruitment and retention into employed roles or chosen fields.
100 Māori Leaders will profile the successes of Māori, and will provide glimpses of how Māori leaders are playing significant roles in their professional fields, whānau, hapū, iwi and communities. As a tool for aspiration, acknowledgement, and inspiration, the online resource tells of the successes of Māori leadership and excellence.
100 Māori Leaders is an accumulative resource that will continue to grow with the invitation of more Māori leaders’ stories in time.
We hope that 100 Māori Leaders will inform the successes by Māori, and in doing so raises potential, and the positive motivators to advance both the current and future Māori health workforce! Mauri Ora!
