Integrating an inclusive culture right across its business is a top priority for Vector Limited.

Book your place at this Diversity Group Meeting to hear how the 2019 Diversity Awards NZ™ supreme winner introduced innovative initiatives to improve gender equity and create positive employment opportunities for people with disabilities.

Acknowledging it operates in a male-dominated industry where gender diversity has been an issue for many years, Vector committed to increasing the number of women employed from 30 per cent to 50.8 percent to be representative of New Zealand’s working age population.  It also developed a Women in Leadership programme, to identify and grow female leadership at all levels of the organisation and undertook a pay equity audit.

In the disability space, the company realised there was a gap between its policies and its goal of becoming a truly accessible workplace. It set about to close that gap with a raft of changes including making workspaces more accessible and introducing new technology for hearing and sight-impaired employees, revising recruitment practices, training senior staff in unconscious bias and supporting employees with mental health challenges.

Representatives from Vector will share how they went about implementing the initiatives, challenges faced and the positive outcomes from the programmes.

Vector was previously the Supreme Winner in the 2015 awards programme for its Tomorrow’s Workforce initiative to diversify its recruitment processes and mitigate its vulnerability to fluctuations in the labour market.

Our Diversity Group Meetings are quick, information-packed sessions hosted by organisations that have important diversity stories and insights to share. There will also be time set aside for networking with other supporters of workplace diversity and inclusion.
