Independent systemic racism review
We are committed to becoming a Te Tiriti o Waitangi centric organisation and taking positive steps forward to ensure we do better for Māori.
In June 2021, Aotearoa was confronted with the worst of the Internet in the form of online racism and hatred. We did not step up and defend Māori communities or work to have the material removed from the Internet, and we were wrong.
Council asked for an independent review that would increase our understanding of how systemic racism occurs in InternetNZ and inform a comprehensive approach to ending systemic racism within InternetNZ.
The independent review was led by Dr Hana O'Regan, Tumu Whakarae | Chief Executive of CORE Education. It encompassed a literature review, surveys and face-to-face interviews. The reviewer provided a full report to InternetNZ, including recommendations for improvements.
