Toi Whānui

Enabling technologies

Innovative and emerging technology platforms, products and services for industry and end-users, including artificial intelligence, cyber security, virtual reality and software as a service (SaaS). Toi Whānui involves inventions that are applied to enable and improve user capabilities. It is the largest of the Toi Mai workforces and has grown rapidly (largely through migration), but has low employment of Māori, Pacific people and women.

The latest Toi Whānui publication

This research builds on the findings contained in two reports released by Toi Mai earlier this year into the ‘Leaky Pipeline’ – the barriers to access for young women in the creative technology (Createch) sector.
