How do we Bring Indigenous in a Non-Indigenous World?

Session length: 90 minutes

Executive education and tools are focused in growing the productivity and efficiency of people while in employment. A reality is that Executive education and tools are not relatable and relevant to an indigenous way of living and being. It also shows that people who take up this education are in management positions. In NZ we have a poor representation of indigenous people reflected in high management positions in non-indigenous organisations.

For organisations who want to be leading edge and want to hire more indigenous workers, Michael will give examples of how he has provided a platform for our indigenous people to embrace who they are, where they come from and use those very values to enhance organisations (Community | Corporate etc). Our role as Indigenous people is to embrace who we are, to bring those intrinsic abilities to our everyday decisions, lead the way around diverse thinking and show cohesiveness with people who do not identify with being indigenous.
