Kaupapa Māori Leadership Programme | Free lunchtime sessions for leaders

We are very excited to bring you the next free virtual lunchtime session from Te Whāriki o te Ara Oranga on 28 April that explores a Kaupapa programme run by South Canterbury District Health Board to accelerate leadership capability and capacity among health professionals.

Accelerating leadership capability and capacity among Māori and Pasifika staff is a priority for South Canterbury District Health Board (SCDHB) and the region’s health sector organisations. Navigate, a three-month leadership and learning programme, offers health professionals the opportunity to explore then develop and demonstrate greater leadership in our health care system.

Joseph Tyro, Director Māori Health at SCDHB and his team will explain how the programme has shifted behaviour at a personal and organisational level, and the amazing personal development and relationships that have resulted. The team will also talk about a suite of programmes provided by the DHB to transform organisational culture and improve health outcomes and equity for the hapori.

It brings people together regardless of profession, background or position to wānanga, grow and develop their inherent leadership talents. Its goal is to illuminate, accelerate and multiply leadership capability and strengthen relationships with Māori communities.

Facilitated primarily in a kaupapa Māori way with a tuākana teina approach, it draws upon a Māori perspective on leadership. All SCDHB staff, Māori or not, are welcome to enrol. Marae based wānanga gives participants the opportunity to invest in their own leadership and their future service to the community.

Kahurangi Fergusson-Tibble, Principal advisor, Māori at Te Pou and Dean Rangihuna, Te Kaihapai/Maori Consumer Advisor, Canterbury District Health Board will facilitate this session on stand out mahi.

Whāriki - the network for leaders, innovators and influencers in mental health and addiction services, runs virtual sessions where you can meet manukura dedicated to building strong mental health systems and transforming the status quo.
