He waka eke noa

A canoe that we are all in with no exception.

We are all in this together. At Ihi Research we’re part of our community so it’s important that the work we do has purpose.

We are specialists in our niche field of social research with special expertise in Māori research. We design and implement community research and consultation, and provide research evaluation to motivate change.

We don’t just tell you what the problem is, we identify ways forward, looking for possibilities and seeking to support socially responsible innovation.
