Beca releases Position Statement on Te Tiriti o Waitangi

As we approach Matariki and the beginning of a new year in te ao Māori, Beca has released its Position Statement on Te Tiriti o Waitangi.

Over our last 100 years, Beca has been growing its connection with Māori, building our cultural competency and more recently growing a team of kaimahi Māori (Māori employees) who help our clients and project teams to better engage in te ao Māori (the Māori world), to bring better outcomes for iwi and Aotearoa New Zealand. 

In February, to mark Te Rā o Waitangi (Waitangi Day), Group Chief Executive Amelia Linzey reflected on what the day means, and the progress that Beca has made in its connection with indigenous communities. 

“One of the challenges we have been working on is how we help our New Zealand employees grow their understanding of Te Tiriti and how it impacts our work across the motu,” Amelia wrote. 

“One conclusion we have come to is that along with any training we offer, it will be valuable for us to clearly articulate Beca’s position on Te Tiriti for the benefit of our people, clients and partners,” she said. 

The release of the Position Statement is another important step in Beca’s journey, as we continue to grow our cultural competency, stay true to our values and create positive legacies for the communities we work in.
