2020 Professor Jarrod Haar FRSNZ

Retaining and attracting Māori in science, research and innovation

Professor Jarrod Haar will discuss his recent (2021) publication (with Dr William John Martin) on Aronga Takirua – the cultural double-shift of Māori scientists. Based on a multiple studies of Māori scientists, the paper develops a theoretical model for understanding Aronga Takirua. The authors argue that to understand retention and attraction issues of Māori in science, research and innovation, we need to understand the cultural complexities first.
