Respecting our individuality - Celebrating our diversity.
Te whakaute i to tatou takitahi. Te whakanui i to tatou kanorau.
YouBeYou - Aotearoa is here to celebrate unique identities, showcase our wider society, advocate for equity, empower organisations, and embrace diversity.
Te whakanui i te kanorau, te whakauru me te tika na roto i te tautoko, te whakangungu, me te whakamanatanga hei Kotahi.
You should be proud to be you.
To be the best you that you can be and know that by coming together in unity, we can make our planet, our home, our Aotearoa New Zealand, a place we are all able to walk with pride.
“Aotearoa New Zealand will only achieve the vibrancy of a truly diverse environment, with an appreciation that we should all be proud of the person we were born to be.”
“Ko ta matou panuitanga i tenei ra, hei hapori, ka tutuki noa i a Aotearoa te hihiko o te tino kanorau o te taiao, me te maioha kia whakahīhī tatou katoa ki te tangata i whanau mai ai tatou.”
We seek a more accepting world and work to drive stronger awareness and acceptance of the many ways we are a diverse mix of people. Our values drive unity:
YouBeYou puts words into action through a range of services that bring communities together in partnership, to celebrate diversity, other cultures, abilities, and identities as one. We honour and reflect on our nation’s past, with eyes set firmly on a collaborative and connected future.
Our events showcase our wider society as celebrating diversity, inclusion, and equity, together in Unity.
