MEA, Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi and NZTech worked together to map the Māori technology sector. The benefit of this work is to provide a clear insight into the challenges, barriers and opportunities Māori are facing in 2023 and beyond and to understand what is needed for Māori to thrive in the technology sectorWe launched a series of surveys and have undertaken a series of interviews from October 2022 to January 2023 to invite as many from rangatahi, those studying tech/working in tech roles and those working to grow Māori tech talent.
We have now completed the report and submitted it to MBIE. The report was launched on 7 July 2023 to the public. We are grateful to our team, especially Dr Karaitiana Taiuru and John Clayton for their support on this important body of mahi.
