New Zealand Rainbow Excellence Awards Development Forum, was proudly sponsored by Z Energy and Fletcher Building 2019.

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.

“The New Zealand Workplace Equality Study”

“This is the first piece of research to take an in-depth look at the NZ workplace in terms of how welcoming and safe it is for members of the LGBTTI+ communities. With over 1,000 responses from more than 30 different organisations so far, the data gives us a statistically robust and fascinating insight into this area of the NZ workplace. This report will be of interest to HR practitioners, academics, and members of New Zealand’s Rainbow communities.”
