RSNZ Mentoring Guidelines 12 Apr 2017

Call for comment on updated Royal Society of NZ Mentoring Guidelines

The Chief Executive’s invitation to comment on this document includes an introduction.  The Mentoring Guidelines come about from a working group of Fellows and early career researchers

The guidelines set out mentoring practices that are inclusive of all parts of the New Zealand research community.  Their draft can be downloaded HERE and is open for comment.  They are open to input from other organisations’ Mentoring Guildelines.  If you wish to comment, Please do so to info@royalsociety.org.nz  by 26 April 2017.  

Once the Guildelines are confirmed a programme of activities around mentoring is scheduled for later in the year.

Further development is also underway to review and modernise the RSNZ Code of Professional Standards and Ethics later in 2017.  Enforceable against RSNZ Fellows and members, this is also regarded by government as the baseline standard in New Zealand for good research practice.  Also under review in2018 will be the Society’s Guidelines for Public Engagement

More information about the reviews is available on the Royal Society website.
