Kia ora! Nau mai haere mai.

Hello! Welcome.

The Kindness in Science Collective is a community of people predominantly based in Aotearoa New Zealand focused on leading a culture shift in the science community that embeds kindness to achieve better outcomes.

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

Kindness in Science is a fierce commitment to deliberate and sustained action to build a just science system that is accessible, inclusive and equitable.

Since the inaugural workshop in 2017, the Kindness in Science Collective has been gathering momentum, largely behind the scenes. Five years on, we are on the cusp of reinvigorating the initiative, thanks in large part to the Kindness in Science project funded by Te Pūnaha Matatini. Keep an eye on our ‘Workshops’ for details and updates.
