TRACK 4: Māori Representation in Tech with Lee Timutimu

In this episode, Lee Timutimu, CEO & Founder of Arataki Systems – a tech company owned by Māori people – talks about Māori representation in tech and cultural preservation. From Aotearoa New Zealand, Lee has developed a proximity-based phone app that allows you to learn about the country’s historical locations.

Following Lee’s mission to increase the representation and participation of the Māori in the tech industry, we reflect on the importance of learning from history and the contributions of previous generations in today’s fast-paced realm of technology.
