Inclusive Aotearoa Collective Tāhono | Update # 16

Talofa lava,

New Zealand is setting a global example in cooperation to defeat a life or death threat. Our appreciation goes out to everyone for pulling together and doing what is necessary to make lockdown work. 

Meanwhile, our project is finding its space in the digital domain, with online conversations being held most working days.

Even if we can’t meet you in person, we enjoy getting to know you through Zoom, and hearing about your ideas and experiences around your sense of belonging.

So please tell your networks about our online conversations and encourage them to join in.  

Keep up the good work everyone!  Our lockdown efforts are proving to be a success!

We want to hear from you

Our online conversations about Belonging and Inclusion have been full of interest and insight, but we want to hear from all of you. Every one of your voices is important in this work.

We are using Zoom to host our online events. It’s an easy tool to use and allows us to talk with you via video call. We can host group events or one-to-one. Just let us know which you prefer.

Not used Zoom before?
It’s easy to use (and perfect for keeping in touch during Level 4 restrictions) and can be downloaded here.

There are upcoming events that anyone can join. These events will be published on our Facebook page. Please take a look at our upcoming events and join us. Or visit our events page for more information. If you’re not on Facebook, just email Talie.

Our online survey is live!

Prefer to answer key questions about belonging via a survey? We’ve set up an online survey that asks the same three questions around belonging – and allows you to submit answers at any time from home. Survey responses are completely anonymous. You can respond by typing or by voice recording. We’d really love your help in completing our survey and sharing it with others.

Come hang with us on Tues mornings!

We have been getting together every Tuesday morning at 10 am during Level 4 restrictions to hang out, chat, check in with each other. It’s been great to get to know those of you who have joined us, and we’d love to meet more of you.

It’s social, completely informal, and it’s been a fun way to connect. If you would like to join us, use this link and and we’ll get you connected to our online Zoom space. Looking forward to meeting you there!

If we can help you, please reach out
We are all available and happy to support in whatever ways we can. You are welcome to reach out to any of us:
