To ensure disabled people and tāngata whaikaha Māori are at the decision-making table, Whaikaha – Ministry of Disabled People are inviting expressions of interest from disabled people and tāngata whaikaha Māori to join its Transformation Management Board. 
Transformation Management Board members will primarily provide advice to support the implementation of the transformation initiatives funded through the Budget 2022 contingency.  
The tripartite Board will have nine members:  

  • three tāngata whaikaha Māori 
  • three disabled people 
  • three senior Whaikaha leaders including the Chief Executive.   

Board members will be appointed by the Whaikaha Chief Executive, with a panel of disabled people and tāngata whaikaha Māori (who are not seeking Board appointment). 
The Transformation Management Board will be appointed until December 2025. Members will be paid for attending Board meetings, and Whaikaha will organise overnight accommodation and travel as required.
