Decolonising via Māori Leadership - a fireside chat with Tania Hodges and Grand Berghan
Join us for a fireside chat that delves into the multifaceted dimensions of Māori leadership in Aotearoa. We will discuss the key elements that contribute to the effectiveness and uniqueness of contemporary Māori leadership as a vehicle for change.
Our panel members, Tania Hodges and Grant Berghan, are experienced Māori leadership programme facilitators. They will share their insights on the cultural contexts of Māori leadership, emphasising the integration of tikanga, te reo Māori and indigenous (mātauranga Māori) knowledge. And how these elements shape the leadership development process and foster a deeper understanding of Māori values, including whanaungatanga, rangatiratanga and kaitiakitanga.
The discussion will explore the transformative power of Māori leadership and the potential to shape inclusive, ethical, and culturally grounded leaders who can make a significant difference to both Māori and non-Māori communities. They will examine the programmes’ efforts to address challenges faced by Māori communities and the creative responses to promote cultural revitalisation.
