New Zealand Rainbow Excellence Awards Development Forum, proudly sponsored by Z Energy and Fletcher Building.

Part of our vision is to facilitate within our Rainbow Tick community a sharing of best pratice and to constantly shift the dial on our workplaces as we work towards further improvement.

All our workplaces face exciting challenges, and we see the Development Forum as providing a really powerful opportunity to get together and explore ideas and our work, with the aim of building our own capacity to do better in our own workplaces.

That is why we are hosting a development forum - to enable a shared learning opportunity to help us all work towards rainbow excellence.
