Kia ora,

The purpose of this report is to summarise our delivery to our strategies and plans, and highlight the key metrics that matter to the
ongoing health of our organisation.

Our objectives for Q3 of 2022/23 were:

  • Completing the publication of the Systemic Racism Review, planning strong clear key messages for the media and working with staff on their actions and reactions. Beginning planning for the apology at the beginning of Q4.
  • Developing a project plan for the codesign and implementation work for the Systemic Racism Review.
  • Turning our attention to implementing the Te Puni Whakawhanake strategy signed off by Council in August 2022, including designing the team and considering processes for recruitment.
  • Completing the first version of ‘An internet that Benefits’ work plan for InternetNZ. This is a living document that will keep evolving and changing but represents our first attempt to define our work for ‘an Internet that benefits.’
  • Resolving thinking about where .nz policy and international policy fits in InternetNZ.
  • Orientating the Tumu Whakarae, establishing a 100 day plan and KPI’s leading to the Strategic Priorities document on the agenda for the Feb 2023 Council meeting.

We have made substantial progress across all of the significant commitments of our 2022/23 Annual Plan. Q3 represents a particularly significant moment in the change and evolution of InternetNZ, as we focus to serve our registrars, users of .nz and the people of Aotearoa in using the Internet.

The articles were made up of 28 stories. The topics with the most coverage were the successful migration of the .nz registry and the systemic racism review we conducted. The Herald and Waatea news were the most common outlets followed by Whakaata Māori (Māori TV) TodayFM, and Te Ao Māori News.
