  • Recognise the significance of Indigenous, Maori and Pasifika perspectives and experiences in shaping future developments
  • Contribute to the evidence base and practice of equal opportunity in higher education, and
  • Develop links with organisations that have similar professional aims or recent experiences relevant to equity practitioners (including the corporate sector).
