Maranga Mai - Let’s rise up together

Tu tonu mai
Te iwi e
Maranga mai
Hikitia te wero
Kia mau
Tatou katoa

Stand tall, stand proud
The people
Let us rise up to together
Let us take hold of the challenge
Let’s stand together and face to the future together

“Maranga Mai – Lets rise up together” we must work collectively to bring members together and address the workforce issues in the nursing, midwifery, kaimahi hauora, health care assistance and tauria arena. 

Growing inequalities have perpetuated and can be attributed to apathetic politics that don’t address the issues or the need for urgent change.  This has led to many lagging behind in Aotearoa New Zealand health care system. 

This is not acceptable, fair, or just.  Nurses, midwives, kaimahi hauora, health care assistants and tauira must be courageous to be unsung heroes we need to be prepared to lead change. 

During this Conference we will hear from an outstanding line up of speakers that will provoke your thoughts and inspire collective action to ensure we ensure as a union and a professional organisation that we leave no one behind we must rise up!

Ki te kotahi te kākaho, ka whati; ki te kāpuia, e kore e whati.

If a reed stands alone, it can be broken; if it is in a group, it cannot
