Māori and Pacific communications in New Zealand require messaging that is culturally relevant, memorable and easily understood. Building cultural competence and sensitivity into your communications can enrich your organisation’s communications and business outcomes. But it means understanding your stakeholders’ world and the forces that shape their opinions and beliefs.
• Understand the different Māori and Pacific communities that will be engaging with the messaging they create.• Design a consultation process with Māori and Pacific communities to garner feedback on messaging.• Create content using Māori and Pacific values and cultural frameworks.• Ensure that your communications incorporate the expectations of diverse Māori and Pacific communities.
NB: Course participants will need to complete some self directed learning online to gauge their prior experience, strengths and needs as it pertains to the workshop content. This would need to be handed in a week before the workshop.
Even if you think that your current communications and engagements with your Indigenous stakeholders is sufficient, PolyUX takes our clients deeper and helps them to explore other areas needed for improvement.
