Chair, Migrante Aotearoa
Mikee Santos is the Chair of Migrante Aotearoa, a grass-root, non-profit organisation that advances the rights and welfare of Filipino Migrants in New Zealand.
After his move to Auckland from Manila in 2013, his vulnerability as a migrant was exploited. He was a one of the countless who got victimized, and unfairly treated by their employers.
This motivated him to ensure that others don’t share the same experience.
Passionate about taking care of people, Mikee hails from a hospitality background. After a decade of hotel management with global chains such as Marriott, Sofitel & The Venetian Macau, he now translates this passion to advocating for workers and migrants through his work with First Union and Migrants Aotearoa.
