From front lines to finances: champions of change driving diversity

In this session Gabriel and Mike will share their viewpoints on the ‘why’ of diversity.

Applying a living standards perspective, Gabriel will open the discussion with a look at the role women play in New Zealand’s economy and the importance Treasury places on that. He’ll share what the Treasury has and is doing to ensure diversity thrives in its own back yard and why being a Champion for Change is so important to him.

This year marks 75 years since women were able to become NZ Police officers. Mike will outline the importance of NZ Police reflecting the communities they serve and what he is doing as a Champion for Change to recruit, develop and retain a more diverse workforce.

The session will round out with an interactive workshop focused on practical tips you can take back to your workforce to influence increased diversity and inclusion.
