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.

ODT Cartoon outrage misplaced
We should collectively be righteously appalled at the tone deaf ODT cartoon that made light of the terrible measles epidemic that has killed over 50 children in Samoa. It was an ugly 'joke' that shouted white privilege, but calls to boycott the ODT, sack the cartoonist and the enormous social media wave of fury seem to me to be grotesquely misplaced.
