Speakers include young footwear entrepreneur Gustaavia Lui, Sustainability Manager for Auckland Airport, Martin Fryer, and Pasefika pedagogue, Michelle Johannson.
The event’s organiser and award-winning writer, Courtney Sina Meredith says, “The event aims to showcase people and ideas aligned with the Manukau Institute of Technology – our wonderful staff, graduates, partners and people from the wider community of South Auckland.”
