Digital Moana is a digital platform that provides organisations with a way to raise cultural awareness among their employees. It does this by delivering snackable messaging throughout the day, 365 days a year, on digital display screens in lunchrooms, reception areas, common areas as well as computers.
The messaging is peer reviewed by Māori and Pacific curriculum advisors and designed to be easily accessible and digestible.
Digital Moana is for any organisation that wants to create a more inclusive and diverse workplace. It is particularly well-suited for organisations with deskless workers, as it provides a pathway to learn about Māori and Pacific tikanga and culture in a way that is convenient and accessible.
Digital Moana is a cloud-based platform that is easy to set up and use. Once you have created an account, you can simply select the topics that you want to cover and the frequency with which you want to send messages. Digital Moana will then take care of the rest, delivering the messages to your employees' screens.

The Public Services Act 2020 requires all public service agencies in New Zealand to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in their workplaces. Digital Moana can be a valuable tool for public service agencies in meeting their DEI obligations.
Digital Moana can also be used by training and development professionals to deliver inclusive and culturally sensitive training programs. For example, training and development professionals could use Digital Moana to deliver micro-learning modules on Māori and Pacific cultures. This could be done in conjunction with more traditional training methods, such as workshops and seminars.
HR professionals can also use Digital Moana to support their DEI initiatives. For example, HR professionals could use Digital Moana to promote Māori and Pacific cultural events and initiatives within the organisation. They could also use Digital Moana to provide employees with resources on Māori and Pacific cultures.
Overall, Digital Moana is a versatile tool that can be used by professionals in a variety of industries to raise cultural awareness and create more inclusive workplaces.
