The EEO Trust

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.

Diversity Workshop - From Bias to Bullying 

Date: Thursday 6th November

Time: 9am - 3.30pm

Venue: EEO Training Room Level 1, 100 Mayoral Drive Auckland

Investment: EEO Member $245 + GST Non Member $345 + GST


This is a workshop for managers and team leaders aimed at identifying workplace bullying and harassment and appropriate strategies to deal with such issues in a timely and effective manner. 

You will explore common traps and pitfalls as well as learn how to challenge behaviour and make relevant interventions to resolve issues.  It is no longer acceptable both legally or emotionally – to ignore allegations or evidence of bullying incidents in any workplace of any size. 

Diversity Workshop - Employing people with divers-abilities                

Date: Wednesday 12th November

Time: 9:00am- 1:00pm

Venue: EEO Training Room Level 1, 100 Mayoral Drive, Auckland 

Investment: $175 + GST for EEO Trust members, $275 + GST for non-members 

To book:

One in five New Zealanders has a disability. Like other New Zealanders, their skills, experience and educational qualifications are widely varied, but they are an under-utilised talent pool. This presents a huge opportunity for workplaces, both in terms of tapping into disabled people's skills and talents in a skills-short employment market, and more importantly reflecting the demographic of a diverse society which includes people of all abilities. 

Employing disabled people makes good business sense. Benefits to workplaces include:

  • Attracting and retaining the best of the talent pool, including latent talent
  • Improving customer service
  • Strengthening workplace morale and productivity
  • Being a good corporate citizen
  • Complying with legislative requirements and meeting international standards

EEO Trust library and location

Our fantastic new diversity library, is located on Level 1, 100 Mayoral Drive, Auckland, and we look forward to welcoming any EEO Trust members who feel like dropping in to discuss workplace diversity initiatives.
