Whāinga Amorangi resource hub

Whāinga Amorangi is a multi-year cross-agency work programme designed to lift the Māori Crown relations (MCR) capability of the public service.

Te Arawhiti created Whāinga Amorangi to help chief executives of public service departments meet their new responsibility under the Public Service Act 2020(external link) and to lift and maintain the capability of their people to engage with Māori.

Lifting MCR capability means increasing capability in individual and organisational competency areas and skills that will shift the Crown towards true Treaty partnership.

The Māori Crown relations capability framework [PDF, 326 KB] sets out core and specialist competency areas to develop capability in, as well as providing a maturity model that describes what it means to be comfortable to capable in each competency area.

Each core Crown agency developed a Whāinga Amorangi Phase One plan in 2021, articulating how they will build the MCR capability of their people, relevant to their role and function.

This Whāinga Amorangi resource hub has been created as a space for people who aspire to lift their own personal capability or that of their organisation.

You will find guidance in this hub on what lifting MCR capability looks like, how to create your own capability plan and some learning resources for individual development.

This is a living hub: new resources will be added as they are created or shared.
