LGBTQITakatāpui+ Employer Panel Session

Time: 6-8pm
Venue: Arts Student Centre, Level 4, Social Sciences Building, 10 Symonds Street

The world of work is constantly developing, and thankfully organisations are recognising the importance and value of embracing diversity and inclusivity for the Rainbow community in the workplace. Providing a safe space for all employees to bring their true and whole selves to work is important to the success of both a company and its employees.

Join us to hear from employers leading the way for diversity and inclusion in the workplace and the impact it has on the Rainbow community.
