He Waka Eke Noa
He Waka Eke Noa are the mindsets and behaviours that drives our unique culture here at Tāmaki Paenga Hira. Created with our people it's how we think, act and feel as employees of Auckland Museum. It is underpinned by Māori and Pacific values and our He Korahi Maori and Teu Le Vā strategies. It is also a development framework that we use to identify our strengths and areas of development.
Our five He waka Eke Noa mindsets ensure that we are all on one waka paddling in the same direction. Download the full document here.
Diversity and Inclusion
For Tāmaki Paenga Hira, diversity is not just a necessity, but a responsibility. Auckland is one of the most diverse cities in the world and the Museum has an important role to play as a place of learning, participation and belonging: enriching the lives of all Aucklanders and engaging all of our visitors.
Our strategic objective is: An inclusive Museum - a truly creative organisation where the diverse communities of Tāmaki Makaurau are engaged and employed; where they experience manaakitanga, respect and connection, where their voices are heard and their stories are told.
To achieve this we have a Diversity and Inclusion Working Group made up of staff from across our organisation who work to ensure that our Diversity Action Plan is delivered each year. Workstreams in this area include Accessibility, Rainbow Inclusion, Mental Wellbeing and Anti-racism.
