Addressing the skills gap through diversity. Stirring The Pot

    • Non-Profit

In this episode of Stirring the Pot, we talk with Maori Hydraulic Engineer at Norman Disney & Young, Byron Konia. We discuss what our metals industry can do to better facilitate Maori engagement with engineering – and why that’s so important for us to do in terms of extending our industry capacity to become more diverse and attractive to work in.
 We also speak candidly with Maori Education Trust General Manager Evelyn Newman to understand why scholarships are essential in assisting students in their career pathway and the difference such opportunities make.
