We’re on a journey to embrace Te Ao Māori into Engineering New Zealand Te Ao Rangahau and the wider profession.
Kōrerorero and kai with Te Ao Rangahau
Calling all those in the engineering community who identify as Māori. Attend one of our kanohi ki te kanohi hui throughout the motu from May to August 2023 – we’d love to see you there.
Te Ao Rangahau is on a journey to embrace Te Ao Māori, both within our organisation and throughout the wider profession. We’re excited to do this mahi and are keen to hear from you.
Expanding our cultural intelligence and uniqueness
Kimihia Rangahaua is the name of our strategy to embed Te Ao Māori (Māori world view) into our work, our organisation, and the engineering profession. The phrase ‘Kimihia Rangahaua’ expresses searching intently for truth, clarity and understanding in what is largely the unknown. It's taken a long time to get to this point and there's still much work to be done.
You’ll hear more from us over the coming months as we work with Māori members and the wider profession to create meaningful and authentic change under Kimihia Rangahaua.
For now, read our foundational story in Māori and English below to find out how we got here, why now and what next.
Start your journey with a learning module
To bring Kimihia Rangahaua to life, we’re offering a two-hour interactive learning module on Te Tiriti o Waitangi and the Treaty of Waitangi that was built in partnership with Mātauranga Māori.
Register and complete the module for an introduction to the content and context of Te Tiriti and The Treaty, some key principles, and how to apply these to your work and workplace. You’ll also learn some key terms in English and Māori relating to Te Tiriti.
The learning module is now live. Members can access the module here.
Non-members are also welcome to access the module here, but please note there is a charge for nonmembers.
