ACE Conference

ACE Conference June 14–15, 2023, Tāmaki Makaurau (Auckland)

Ka pū ka hao Leadership 

Registrations are closed.


Ka pū ka hao comes from the whakatauki "Ka pū te ruha, ka hao te rangatahi" (as an old net withers, a new one is made). It acknowledges the importance of wisdom, leadership and guidance as well as the important energy and strength of youth coming through and leading in a different way. 
ACE is a leading sector in tertiary education. It consistently demonstrates innovative practice and a commitment to learner-centred teaching and learning. Like all sectors ACE must be proactive in succession planning and capability building, and reflect on how it provides leadership opportunities and pathways for everyone.
Our 2023 ACE conference will address the urgency of succession planning on the back of retiring legacy leaders with the intention of encouraging action around increasing youth participation and seeing ACE as a valid career pathway. We will examine leadership in a variety of contexts – in te ao Māori and Pacific, as tumuaki of an organisation, as a Board member and ACE practitioner.
