An Introduction to Data Sovereignty

NDF and Chris Cormack (Kāi Tahu, Kāti Māmoe) present a half day introductory workshop to Data Sovereignty in the workplace. Geared towards individuals involved in data protection, ownership and preservation, this workshop is designed to empower participants with the knowledge and tools needed to navigate data sovereignty in their workplace and understand the value of forging collaborative relationships between organisations and indigenous communities, centered on trust and mutual respect.

Participants will:

Be equipped with a comprehensive understanding of data sovereignty, focusing on its critical importance to Māori

Delve into the cultural and ethical considerations for managing indigenous data within their organisation

Develop ethical data practices that align with Māori data sovereignty principles, covering key aspects such as data protection, ownership, and the preservation of cultural heritage

Be invited to join an online learning hub that allows participants to access additional resources, refer back to the workshop’s PowerPoint slides and virtually meet and discuss their learning with other workshop attendees from across the country.
