Accountants ponder culture and cashbooks
Maori accountants are looking for ways to bridge the financial needs and economic concerns of Maori people while working in a corporate environment.
It’s one of the questions to be discussed at the annual hui of Nga Kaitatau Maori o Aotearoa, in Hamilton this week.
Chair Wiwini Hakaraia says Maori are under-represented in the profession, so the hui is a way for the next generation to interact with current practitioners to gain confidence and grow their networks.
Speakers include New Zealand Superannuation Fund chief executive Adrian Orr, ASB senior economist Jane Turner and motivational speaker Ngahihi Bidois, who will talk about using ancient Maori wisdom for modern day solutions.
