Kiwa

Kiwa is KPMG’s network for Māori and Pasifika colleagues to connect and support one another during our careers at KPMG.

The name Kiwa is taken from the ingoa Māori, Te-Moana-nui-a-Kiwa, which is the name for the Pacific Ocean. Kiwa represents and celebrates the diversity of this great ocean and its many nations and cultures it brings to our workplace. Nau mai, whakatau mai ra e te whānau whanui o Te Moana nui a Kiwa, mauri ora.

Our purpose:

  • Develop an inclusive environment that demonstrates genuine interactions with Māori and Pasifika languages, cultural practices and customs.
  • Build a pipeline of extraordinary young Māori and Pasifika that reflects Aotearoa’s unique multi-culturalism, through mentoring Māori and Pasifika tertiary students.
  • Support new Māori and Pasifika KPMG’ers to ensure they feel welcomed and settled into their new roles.
