Diversity Works New Zealand is looking forward to hosting the Whiria ngā kaha: Workplace Inclusion Aotearoa Conference in Rotorua on 15-17 February 2023.

The conference is a wonderful opportunity to hear the latest trends, find out what other organisations are doing to advance cultures on inclusion and network with people committed to this mahi. We will also launch the Global Inclusion & Diversity Alliance (GIDA) and Diversity Works New Zealand’s professional accreditation programme at the conference.
