Cultural Audit

We conduct full cultural audits around specific high-level focused questions. These questions are underpinned by your organisation’s commitment to be responsive to Māori in its interactions at the governance and operational levels. 

The cultural audit undertakes a number of methodologies including surveys, interviews, document and policy review, data analysis, report writing and presentation of findings.

Cost: to be discussed and agreed
