It was fantastic to see so many attend the Allyship: Partnering for equity huihuinga in July to consider how best to support the tāngata Māori workforce by upholding te Tiriti o Waitangi responsibilities. As a result of the huihuinga and a desire expressed to know how to be an ally in practice Whāriki is pleased to be able to host Jen Margaret, author of Working as Allies to present this webinar on tangata Tiriti acting as haumi (allies) in health.
Jen is Pākehā, of Cornish, Scottish, Danish and German ancestry. She has been active in Te Tiriti education for over 20 years and is the Director of Groundwork: Facilitating Change.
“We respond to the call from Māori for Pākehā to shoulder the responsibility of educating our own people and support change within tangata Tiriti-led organisations. Our approach is to centre tangata whenua voices, while ensuring that tangata Tiriti understand and act on their Te Tiriti responsibilities.”
