What are the benefits of having a language plan?


A Māori language plan can help ensure that efforts to revitalise Māori language are carefully directed to be as effective as possible. 

Through developing and implementing a language plan, your organisation will:

  • Contribute to the revitalisation of te reo Māori
  • Enhance your organisation’s relationships with Māori
  • Strengthen your identity as a New Zealand organisation
  • Increase your organisational health by growing a confident and capable workforce
  • Meet other organisational goals that are enhanced by the use of te reo Māori such as Crown-Iwi relations, diversity and inclusion and cultural responsiveness.   

See Language Planning for more information on how to start.
