Diversity & Inclusion

Supporting a just and equitable transition to zero carbon for our communities means advocating for organisations to build authentic, inclusive workplaces that foster a sense of belonging.

Moving Beyond Diversity

Moving Beyond Diversity 

SBC Members are integrating ways of working that support greater diversity and inclusion within their businesses and reporting progress transparently.

Current Work

These are challenging times. With no organisation, community or whanau immune to the effects of COVID, people’s wellness and wellbeing are paramount. We see building belonging in the workplace as even more critical right now given the levels of disruption and uncertainty.

We have been working with a group of CEs and their People leaders from members including DB, Spark, and Sanford to shape this initiative. Our aim is to support organisations build authentic, inclusive workplaces that foster a sense of belonging.

It essential that diversity and inclusion are at the heart of both our approach and the outcomes sought. We will be facilitating a three-step collaborative design-led process j during June - August 2021  to start our korero about how we are individually and collectively best able to drive behaviour-led systemic change. This collaborative process will be led in partnership with Hia Kai, gaining insights, testing ideas, and prototype solutions for tackling shared challenges through rapid innovation sprints.

What will participants gain from the wānanga

This is a unique opportunity to be part of a movement of change delivering impact no organisation can deliver alone. Participants will also gain new adaptive leadership techniques to drive change, tools which that can be applied to other challenges in your organisations.
