About MĀIA

Become part of the network for NZ women working in Asia.

MĀIA in Maori is an adjective: be brave, bold, capable, confident. The perfect name for a network for women to give and receive support through leadership, career development, diversity and inclusion.

With the support of NZ Chamber Singapore and the NZ ASEAN Business Alliance, we're bringing together professional like-minded women operating in Singapore and across Asia.


The network has four key pillars of focus:

Haere mai | Network and support for those coming to Asia 

Haere rā | Network and support for those returning home to New Zealand

Te hono | Connecting women in business here in Singapore and across Asia

E tipu | Growing talent and nurturing mentor/mentee relationships within the network

If you are interested in participating or contributing to this network, please get in touch at
