Uniting for Change Conference Outcomes and Next Steps

We made several commitments at the Uniting for Change conference which we plan to honour:

  • to share all the speakers’ presentations, including our Pecha Kucha speakers
  • to weave together your slido feedback into easily accessible documents
  • to answer your questions

You have also laid us the challenge of creating clear next steps to advance Aotearoa’s youth employability kaupapa. You told us that:

  • the conference was excellent
  • the provider mahi happening around the country is valuable, just not adequately funded or connected
  • more employers want to help but aren’t yet clear on how
  • rangatahi voices are growing but are not yet central
  • cultural awareness and inclusion are growing but equity gaps in education and labour market continue to grow as well

So we need to keep moving forward, as there is much to do before all rangatahi are able to build the confidence and skills they need to flourish in life, learning and work.
