The EEO Trust would like to invite you to join us for our annual general meeting which will also showcase a diversity leader that ‘Walk’s the Talk’ and won this category in this year’s Diversity Awards.
Peter Potaka from Statistics New Zealand, has managed to tap into large ethnic communities that had previously been hidden and unaccounted for by Census data. Come and hear how Peter recruited people from 22 different ethnic backgrounds to influence their communities and the positive outcomes which was reaching more than a million people in Maori, Pacific, Asian and other ethnic audiences.
At the AGM the EEO Trust’s chairman, Michael Barnett, will run through the Trust’s activities for 2013. So come along to hear more about the positive benefits of diversity in the workplace and how the EEO Trust can help you on your journey.
We also invite you to join us for refreshments after the meeting. Book now at firstname.lastname@example.org
