In New Zealand, effective engagement can require working with Māori organisations.

Engaging with the right people, in the right way, is vital when engaging with Māori - whether iwi, hapu, Māori groupings or organisations.

This requires more than just understanding protocols. It needs to be viewed in the wider context and designed around a strategy based on a deep understanding of key drivers, community stakeholders and relationships.

For those who have never operated within te ao Māori — the ‘Māori world’ or way of doing things – it can be daunting.

SenateSHJ provides understanding, support and lasting connections so organisations in both the private and public sectors can engage positively with Māori and take advantage of the opportunities that working together brings.
