Recent NPM Board Member, University of Auckland Pro-Vice Chancellor (Māori) and former Children's Commissioner Professor Cynthia Kiro has been appointed Ahorangi - Chief Executive of the Royal Society Te Apārangi.

Royal Society Te Apārangi recently convened a multidisciplinary panel  of leading experts to examine issues of equality, equity, and fairness in Aotearoa. The panel’s name, Te Tapeke, comes from the saying ‘ka tapeke katoa te iwi’ and conveys valuing and including all people.

Kia hiwa rā! kia hiwa rā!
Kia hiwa rā i tēnei tuku!
Kia hiwa rā i tērā tuku!
Kia tū, kia oho, kia mataara e!
Pū te koa i te whakapuakitanga e tūpapahū nei.
Ka whakamihatia, ka whakamānawatia ngā ihuoneone o te kaupapa.
Koutou katoa e whakapeto ngoi ana, e okea ururoatia kia ū ai ki tā
Ngā Pae matekitenga, whāinga, whakataukī anō hoki.
Nei anō a Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga e ngunguru nei, au, au, auē, hā!  Hī!!
