NPM E-PĀNUI | November 2022
With the promise of summer (and a holiday) now in sight, the team at NPM are ramping up to welcome our keynote speakers, presenters, and participants to IIRC22 on 15 November. The final programme for our fully virtual conference is on the NPM website. Registrations are still open. Don’t forget that we’ve also made the keynote sessions open access for those who aren’t registered – you will still need to use the registration tool but just select the Free Keynote Only option.
Ka pū te ruha, ka hao te rangatahi
As well as keeping abreast of IIRC22, our Pouhere Rangahau Dr Kiri Edge has also been busy matching tauira with projects for our New Horizons summer internships. The internship programme is a long-standing and very successful strategy for growing cohorts of Māori research leaders, working alongside experienced NPM researchers.
Given the financial challenges facing many tauira, we increased the value of the award to $7.5k this year and hope that other internship programmes across the sector will follow suit.
We also recently had the privilege of meeting and talking with the 11 recipients of our NPM Futures Programme PhD scholarship. We were blown away by the depth of their knowledge, experience, and commitment to rangahau that accelerates flourishing Māori futures. Being able to tautoko our incredible tauira is one of the most satisfying aspects of our job, and we look forward to many more opportunities to do so.
Finally, we wish the Black Ferns all the best for their remaining World Cup matches. What an incredible rōpū of wāhine. Karawhiua!
