PublishedThe MacDiarmid Institute supports Māori and Pasifika capability within the Institute at all levels, through targeted strategies of representation and inclusion, and through improving the cultural competency of all Institute members. Our equity objective for students is that Māori and Pasifika students participate and achieve and are retained on par with other students at all levels; we are committed to redressing the stark underrepresentation of Māori and Pasifika in the academic workforce in our fields of research.

PublishedWe expect Supervisors and Students to adhere to all their University policies and guidelines. A good research experience should base itself in good faith and trust that the supervision journey is premised around mutual respect, responsibility and that there is open communication to raise any issues safely and without judgement should they arise.

PublishedThe Supervisory Expectations document is to be used in addition to existing University policies around supervision, but is a useful document to either follow or use as a guideline for discussions around supervision expectations and responsibilities between a student and their supervisor/s. While broad, this document may be used as a starting point to determine finer details.

PublishedThe MacDiarmid Institute for Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology is a New Zealand Centre of Research Excellence. We are committed to upholding the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi, and recognizing the distinct status of Māori as tangata whenua, with whom we look to partner to achieve greater diversity and inclusion within the scientific community.
PublishedThe MacDiarmid institute is committed to increasing diversity in science, and as such, our expectation when sponsoring events is that event organisers will have a documented plan to achieve balanced gender and cultural representation in keynote and invited speakers, and on panels, as well as processes to ensure representative diversity amongst general event attendees. We note that gender is not binary.

PublishedThe MacDiarmid institute recognizes that many of our events require people to take time away from their family responsibilities, and that this can be an additional burden and barrier to inclusion of people at particular points in their career. We also recognize the other caring responsibilities that all people have, at different times.
