TupuToa’s investment partners are a stand-out group of over 60 progressive, leading corporates and public sector organisations committed to a fundamental shift in business practices and culture, maximising Māori and Pasifika leaders. With over 150+ interns, we reached out to gain some insights into how our partners’ experience of our interns and their internships were. Here is some of their feedback:
TupuToa provides the confidence for fantastic Māori and Pasifika talent to put their hand up and be recognised for the incredible skills and diversity of thought they can bring to NZ’s corporate and professional services - Caroline Peak Talent Partner, BNZ
We have been impressed by the sense of whanau that TupuToa generates, not only within its own organisation, but also with its partners and across its partner network. It feels special to be on this journey with TupuToa and their interns - Daniel Lund Head of Cloud First, Accenture NZ
It’s a privilege to have the TupuToa interns as part of our business. Through just being themselves, they bring such energy and enthusiasm. It’s been rewarding to see them grow so much both personally and professionally in such a short space of time - Susan Chu Talent Partnerships Manager, SkyCity
The inclusion of interns from TupuToa really bolstered our diversity in this space and proved that this initiative is of extreme importance for any organisations succession planning, and how we incorporate different perspectives and world views. This cohort of interns demonstrated confidence and dynamic thinking in my interactions with them and showed the types of innovations that young leaders bring to the table. TupuToa enables incredibly talented individuals to attain valuable work experience and in turn takes managers on a cultural journey. TupuToa interns offer insightful perspectives and have contributed to enhancing our cultural capability. It has been a pleasure meeting such talented young people - Kim Sperry Principal Adviser National Recruitment Projects, Corrections
