Taitamariki Potentia: Whakatere Mahi

It’s been a long time coming and we can finally announce that we’re bringing Taitamariki Potentia to Te Whanganui-a-Tara (Wellington) to launch a second rangatahi hapori! And what better week to kickstart the hapori (community) than Techweek22…

What is Taitamariki Potentia?

By rangatahi, for rangatahi. Launched in July 2020, Taitamariki Potentia is our award-winning, student-led tech community that goes about tackling one key challenge: bridging the gap between studies, employment and leadership. The kaupapa is centred on creating mana enhancing space for rangatahi to bring all of themselves. Through a series of events, meetups and webinars, we’re able to build confidence, create role models and most importantly, help more rangatahi further their hīkoi into Aotearoa’s tech industry.

What can you expect on the night?

Much like some of our previous Taitamariki Potentia evenings, we’re kicking things off with a World Cafe-style networking event, which sees rangatahi break off into smaller groups and rotate around a series of tables (each hosted by an industry expert).

Each table will focus on ONE particular part of the career haerenga (journey), as well as tackling many of the real issues that our rangatahi face while trying to break into and progress their careers in Aotearoa’s workforce. While you’re sure to take away plenty of learnings about navigating your next steps, separating the tables like this also gives you the platform to collaborate and share your own experiences in a safe space.

On the night, some of the topics we’ll be covering include:

- Navigating your entry into the tech workforce

- Delivering in your first six months

- Journey to your first promotion

- Your first leadership role

- Enhancing your mana and identity in senior management

If you (or any students/graduates in your network) are keen to come along, register now to secure your spot.
