Our program partners


TupuToa seeks to ensure corporate Aotearoa is representative of our country, by developing and empowering our people and building the cultural capability of our partners.

TupuToa was borne from the need to see increased Māori and Pacific representation in leadership positions in the corporate sector. Māori and Pacific peoples make up a quarter of our population and yet are largely invisible in corporate New Zealand. This is more pronounced in corporate leadership and in the IT Sector.

The DXC partnership with TupuToa will provide internship and graduate opportunities for Māori and Pacific university students to join DXC.


In partnership with Rea, Microsoft and some of our DXC corporate and government agencies, DXC is working to address the under representation of Māori and Pacific peoples in the technology sector, where only 7% of the workforce is from Māori and Pacific peoples communities. 

Rea provides DXC and our customers with a cohort of cadets who would like a career in the IT Sector and provide comprehensive life skills and training to set them up for success. Microsoft provide training and upskilling in their Business Applications, before DXC assigns the cadets to in-flight projects with mentors over a 12-week period. The cohort are paid during this cadetship while they train and gain experience. At the conclusion of the cadetship, DXC or our  customers offer full time employment to these new technology professionals.
