Brown Pages is passionate about using Indigenous-centred design thinking and cross cultural communications to create positive systems changes that affect Māori and Pacific peoples. We want to inspire leaders to turn cultural ways of working into business as usual through measurable outcomes that are shockingly different.
We help subject matter experts and professionals build bridges to communicate better with Māori and Pacific stakeholders.
Subject matter experts and professionals are at different places on the continuum to becoming culturally intelligent and this can be a lifelong journey. Below is a journey map developed by Brown Pages to chart the various stages along this CQ (also known in business as cultural quotient) continuum and where people might be at. It outlines the different types of solutions that could be tailored for each step of their journey. Their steps are by no means static as some people could go forwards and backwards. The suggested solutions can also be interchangeable.
