The Navigate Summit theme for 2023: growing a diverse supply chain reflects a growing recognition of the added value that Māori and Pasifika businesses bring to public and private sector supply chains. Navigate 2023 will unpack the roles that government, buyers, suppliers and Not for Profits play in improving/increasing/expanding our collective ability to grow a more equitable Aotearoa.

Explore Tere ki Tai, the world’s first indigenous framework designed to inspire and guide organisations towards becoming global leaders in supplier diversity.

Learn from other practitioners in the interactive workshops about how they are navigating the challenges and opportunities of a creating a diverse supply chain and get involved in big conversations around the future of supplier diversity in Aotearoa and embracing Te Ao Māori.


Navigate is for people that want to be at the cutting edge of transformational social and economic change. Focussed on people with influence and those responsible for developing contracts and bringing many of Aotearoa’s construction and infrastructure projects to life, this is a real opportunity to be a part of a movement to shape the future of procurement practice in Aotearoa.
