RSNZ Mentoring Guildelines 05 Jul 2017

Royal Society Te Aparangi has announced the release of new Mentoring Guideline.

These guidelines draw on Maori and Pasifika perspectives to offer a unique framework for mentoring in the increasingly diverse context of Aotearoa New Zealand. We believe they are quite unique in approach and thus will usefully supplement many of the mentoring practices already in place in research organisations. Whilst developed at the request of the Society’s Early Career Researcher group, it is anticipated that even experienced mentors will benefit from the guidelines given the increasingly diversity of the Aotearoa New Zealand research community. In developing these guidelines we are addressing in part our legislated function of providing for the professional needs or researchers and scholars.

The guidelines are freely available to be used by anyone or any group who find them helpful, but do not constitute formal advice of the Royal Society Te Aparangi.  They can be accessed at.
