The use of evidence is increasingly becoming the cornerstone for programme and policy development across the social sector. But with its use comes several challenges that Superu is working with the sector to address.
One of these challenges relates to ensuring that New Zealand has robust research frameworks that address whānau wellbeing from a Te Ao Māori perspective. To this end, Superu is working with Te Puni Kōkiri to bring you Te Ritorito 2017, our first-ever forum on concepts, research, policy and programmes about whānau, hapū and iwi wellbeing. You will need to be quick to secure your seat for this important forum, which is being held over two days (3-4 April) at Pipitea Marae.
Registrations have also just opened for our annual Evidence to Action conference, which will be held on 19 June. This event brings together researchers, programme developers, policymakers and funders to network and share their insights about the use of evidence and what works.
We warmly invite you to attend one or both events. Read more about these events, and our other news, in our March newsletter.
