Our vision is to build and improve the capacity for researchers to work with Māori communities and support student capability. We will implement initiatives to ensure Māori are creators and navigators in the development of next generation health technologies, and that the research community is confident and equipped to engage with Māori.
To achieve this we will hold initiatives to:
increase researchers' baseline ability to engage with Māori
improve project design
partner health providers with Māori communities
Events and Initiatives
Cultural competency workshops
National workshops providing baseline competency in working with Māori for non-Māori and Māori researchers alike.
Manaaki sessions for researchers and clinicians
Who are you as a Tiriti partner and how does Te Tiriti apply to your research and/or clinical work? The manaaki sessions are a safe online space for both Māori and non-Māori alike to participate in open discussions around our understandings and experiences of Te Tiriti.
For research groups wanting to work with Māori or require assistance to ensure that a grant/project is responsive to and inclusive of a Māori perspective, one-on-one assistance and advice will be available by request. This includes project design advice and document preparation services.
