Governance workshops in 2016

"It was nice to have this workshop presented from a Maori perspective, it brings a reality to the table that many of us will have to deal with if we are nominated to Maori Boards and quite different to the world of tauiwi".

"Very informative. Maori jump on boards without knowing what is expected of them and not fully understanding the
purpose of the group they are representing".

Governance workshops have now finished for 2016. If you are interested in attending in 2017 then email Jessica O'Donnell and let her know.We will notify you when dates for 2017 are confirmed.

About Us

In 2008 the Ministry of Health announced a significant investment into strengthening the Māori workforce. This investment would underpin the government’s workforce priority to:

  • Train more nurses and midwives
  • Promote clinical leadership and,
  • Increase the size and quality of the frontline clinical workforce
