Project focused on building Māori digital skills

Māori communities need technology industry leadership and support to help increase their participation in New Zealand’s digital economy, a Massey University master’s graduate says.

Dan Walker, a senior executive with a global technology company, did his thesis on Māori social and cultural values, and how they influence involvement in community programmes to build digital skills.

Walker is from South Taranaki and is of Ngāti Ruanui descent. As part of his thesis research, he worked with 2NuiCODE, a programme set up by the South Taranaki iwi (Māori community) to build the coding, robotics and mobile app development skills of young people.
