Karanga mai, karanga mai, karanga mai rā!
The call goes out!

KIWA has developed an innovative tool kit that is putting cultural intelligence support on to the phones and tablets of workforces throughout New Zealand.

The tool kit enables the development of a customized app that builds awareness, empathy, skill and confidence when engaging with another language and culture. The app is easy, self paced, and fun to use – and provides staff with the opportunity to learn about the language and culture wherever suits them, whether at work or in the privacy of their own home.

New Zealand Government technology agency Callaghan Innovation was the first to use the new tool kit, developing a customised application, Te Pou Herenga, that brings Te Ao Māori /the Māori World into their workplaces.

KIWA is now working with many New Zealand business, government and community organisations, see for example on our showcase the Department of Conservation, Work Safe New Zealand, and Meridian Energy.

Leading the way is Ararau Rangi Air New Zealand, Supreme Award Winner at the Māori Language Awards 2016, whose decade long programme of integrating te reo Māori and Māori values into workplaces and customer interactions now includes Te Kete Tikanga Māori, their cultural and language app.

We are keen to support your organisation develop a unique app that supports your cultural strategies in a positive and helpful way. The technology can be customised for any business, government or community organisation, and for any culture and language.
