Hello! Welcome.

What is ‘Kindness in Science’?

Kindness in Science is a living definition, currently best defined as:

Kindness in Science is a fierce commitment to deliberate and sustained action to create a science system that is right and just.

Who are we?

We are a diverse collective based in Aotearoa New Zealand leading a culture shift in the science community that embeds kindness to achieve better science outcomes.

The Kindness in Science Collective was co-founded by Catherine Febria (@ecofebria), Stephanie Galla (@sgalla32), Kate Hannah (@Knhannah), Shaun Hendy (@hendysh), Dan Hikuroa (@DanHikuroa), Aleksandra Pawlik (@aleksandrana), Tammy Steeves (@testeeves) and Cilla Wehi (@CillaWehi).

What do we do?

Since the inaugural Kindness in Science workshop in December 2017 the initiative has been growing, largely behind the scenes, but we hint at two of our more recent (and exciting!) initiatives in the ‘workshops’ tab. You can also search #KindnessInScience on social media to see how we, and others, are embedding kindness in science.
