On the 27th August we celebrated the 17th annual diversity awards that took place here in Auckland with 500 businsess people from across New Zealand joining us to celebrate workplace diversity initiatives in their organisations. It was a fantastic evening with so many wonderful and inspirational stories shared. The ultimate accolade - the Supreme Award - went to Jacobs who were recognised for their inclusive culture and programmes that empower their staff. The team here at the EEO Trust are very proud to have been a part of the night's celebrations and would like to congratulate everyone involved. Read more and see photos from the night here.
The Equal Employment Opportunities (EEO) Trust is a national body mandated by government to provide support to employers around the issue of equal opportunities and diversity in the workplace.
The EEO Trust assists employers in introducing and managing proven EEO thinking and practices, encourages diversity by promoting the recruitment and development of people on the basis of merit and generates awareness of the business benefits and rewards of an inclusive workplace.
Based in Auckland, the EEO Trust works with employers around New Zealand providing the latest resources, ideas and information to support workplaces to achieve success through effectively managing diversity. The EEO Trust is resourced by fees from member organisations and Government contributions. It is governed by a Board of Trustees.
