Meet the team
Meet Ngaio (Ngāi Tahu) a total lady boss and Engagement Consultant here at ICE (Inspire, Create & Engage), a team of vibrant young professionals changing the game for other young people in the midst of their early in careers journey.
Growing up in the small town of Kawerau and not seeing any family members go to university sparked a huge goal for Ngaio: to be part of breaking down barriers whilst following her own passions! As a young Māori herself, Ngaio is particularly passionate about creating equal access for all and restoring indigenous rights in education.
With experience in Education and Psychology, Ngaio has a professional and personal interest in researching developmental and cognitive access needs in an educational environment. In her role at ICE, Ngaio in particular champions fellow rangatahi in the Growth Project - Whakaahu Whakamua.
