Three new fellows of InternetNZ
Since 1998, InternetNZ | Ipurangi Aotearoa has been recognising members of the New Zealand Internet community with fellowships. These are awarded to those who have made a particular contribution to the development of the Internet in New Zealand or to the Society.
At the AGM on 28 July 2022, we had the pleasure of announcing three new fellows.
- Andrew Chen
- Vivian Chandra
- Jamie Baddeley
Andrew Chen was recognised for his role during the COVID-19 pandemic in helping Aotearoa New Zealand understand digital contact tracing, particularly as implemented through the New Zealand COVID Tracer app. This mahi provided an immense benefit for Aotearoa in such unprecedented times.
Vivian Chandra was recognised for all her public good work and commitment to education and empowerment through technology. Vivian works to create equality and diversity in the tech sector, including her work for the Pam Fergusson Trust and OMG Tech Rangers and in the empowerment of women.
Jamie Baddeley was recognised for his time as InternetNZ Councillor, Vice President, and President. During his tenure, which included seven years as InternetNZ President and eight years as a Councillor, Jamie guided the organisation through many reforms. He has also contributed greatly to the wider community with his voluntary support of the ISP Association of NZ and NZNOG.
Congratulations to Andrew, Vivian, and Jamie. Thank you for your contribution to the development of the Internet here in Aotearoa.
