Decolonisation through Critical Career Research and Action: Maori Women and Accountancy
McNicholas, Patty; Humphries, Maria
Australian Journal of Career Development, v14 n1 p30-40 Aut 2005
The call for a just social order in Aotearoa (New Zealand) includes the transformation of mono-cultural institutions such as the accountancy profession. Maori women accountants in this research expressed concern about maintaining their identity as Maori while participating in the corporate culture of the firms in which they are employed. These women helped form a Maori accountants' network and special interest groups to support and encourage Maori in the profession. They are working within the organisation and the discipline of accounting to create new knowledge and practice, through which their professional careers as accountants may be enhanced without the diminishing of those values that give life to "te ao Maori" (a Maori perspective).
