Currently, rangatahi who are aged 17-24 years and Māori, Pasifika, LGBTQI+ or disabled often experience disadvantages and marginalisation due to their ethnicity, sexuality, gender identity and disability. Rangatahi Māori, Pacific young people and disabled young people are also less likely to be in education, employment or training when compared with the general youth population.
Moderator: Mary Haddock-Staniland
Panellists: Ziena Jalil, Talei Bryant, Julia Arnott-Neenee, Anjum Rahman
