E Tu Ake! Investment In Wāhine Māori And Pasifika Women
Keywords:Economic contribution, Māori and Pasifika women, Ministry of Women's Affairs
AbstractIncreasing the economic contribution of women who are at risk of having low lifetime incomes is a priority of the Ministry of Women's Affairs. Using the Māori and Pacific Trades Training initiative as a policy entry-point, this paper re-examines data related to this target group and explores the implications of this ‘new’ data to contribute to improving the economic independence of Māori and Pasifika women with low or no qualifications. Drawing on the findings of the E Tu Ake! Stand Tall and Proud report released by the Ministry for Women, the paper extends those findings to better direct us as policy makers and influencers within the broader policy-workforce interface and in our discussions with employers to more relevantly support these women.
