Katikati Taiao would like to warmly introduce our newest team member, Ariana Tahere (Ngai Te Rangi, Tainui). Ariana joined Katikati Taiao in September as our Insights and Information Administrator, to track our community initiative outcomes in alignment with the Katikati Taiao’s strategic objectives. Ariana brings a fresh te ao Māori perspective, a corporate marketing background, as well as many years of volunteer leadership experience in wellbeing initiatives, both with local iwi and in high deprivation communities in Auckland. Ariana has a talent for bringing clarity to discussions and has already begun simplifying our processes to help us get things done. You’ll see her bright smile in person at our community events; online, building our social media presence; and at the Katikati Taiao Board and stakeholder meetings. We look forward to the value Ariana will add to our organisation. If you’d like to get a hold of Ariana, you can contact her at ariana@katikatitaiao.org
