Māori & Pacific cultural competency program

Digital Moana is an innovative 'ready-made' program from indigenous design experts The Culture and Design Lab which aims to raise the awareness of Māori and Pacific cultures among your employees that are either working; remotely, in office or deskless.

Māori and Pacific peoples make up a high percentage of the kaimahi (workforce) in New Zealand, and while organisations are increasing their diversity and inclusion efforts, there is still a lot of mahi (work) to be done. 

The Digital Moana program introduces employees to a range of Māori and Pacific perspectives and aims to achieve a basic understanding of Indigenous diversity:  

  • The Treaty of Waitangi 
  • Tikanga Māori and cultural values 
  • Pacific customs and cultural values 
  • Introduction to the main Pacific cultures in New Zealand, their languages and relationships with New Zealand

“Cultural competency is something most organisations want to roll-out, but they don’t know how or aren’t resourced to do so. Digital Moana makes it simple to deploy interesting, culturally-sensitive, inclusive content within your workplace.”

Iulia Leilua Director
The Culture and Design Lab
