Fixing the career ladder's broken rung


New Zealand’s changed demographics and the talent shortages facing many industries mean our organisations are recruiting for diversity by default. They need to bring diverse groups into their workplace to achieve business outcomes.

But if those recruits get trapped at the bottom levels of our organisations, unable to even progress to a team leader or supervisor role, that diverse talent is not distributed throughout our workplaces, leaving our businesses and our economy unable to unlock the strategic advantages of an inclusive culture.

So how do we get people from diverse communities onto that first step of leadership and give them opportunities to shine?

Diversity Sessions are interactive online conversations where we can explore inclusion issues impacting our organisations and our people.

In this session our speakers will look at the barriers to progression faced by some groups in our workforce and how organisations can fix the broken rung of the career ladder for everyone.

Speakers include:

  • Debbie Kirby, GM People & Culture – Transport, Downer
  • Eva Sherwood, Director - Consulting, Deloitte
