Championing workplace equity: Unity not uniformity

Earlier this year, we partnered with Diversity Works New Zealand to deliver the virtual Workplace Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Summit. As some of you are aware, the Summit was intended to be an in-person experience but due to COVID restraints, we had to pivot to an online offering.
While the virtual Summit was a resounding success, we know virtual conferences can never replicate face-to-face interactions and in-person networking. We promised we would hold an in-person gathering in October, complimentary for the DE&I community in attendance at the virtual Summit, as a follow-up conversation to the many interesting discussions that were heard then. 
Mark the dates in your calendar, and join us this October to connect, network and learn from your peers on critical DE&I issues, including: 
  • Co-designing DE&I programs with interdisciplinary teams that include people from historically excluded communities 
  • Supporting religious and ethnic equity and inclusion in the workplace by leveraging visible ethnic role models and creating safe places where everyone can thrive   
  • Leveraging Māori and Pasifika pathways to leadership by recognising and addressing the impact of occupational segregation 
It’s time to adapt for human difference by reshaping and redesigning workplaces for inclusion. Let’s start championing workplace equity for a more inclusive Aotearoa. 
Please note that the in-person Summit is running independently from Diversity Works New Zealand and is in no way affiliated with them.
