The Case for Change
In a rapidly changing world, organisations that harness the knowledge, skills and diverse experiences of a wide talent pool will come out on top. As technological, climate and financial change accelerate—and people change their behaviours—the risk to business is that everyone around the leadership table thinks the same way, missing opportunities to respond to our diverse market.
Inclusive corporate cultures attract and retain the best talent. Understanding diverse consumer groups makes for better product and service delivery, while mitigating risk is more comprehensive when wide-ranging experiences are brought to the table. And, in a fair and equitable society, anyone with skills, experience and dedication can become a leader regardless of gender, ethnic background, age and sexual identity.
As Champions for Change, we are committed to ensuring opportunity for all of Aotearoa New Zealand’s talented and ambitious people. We envisage a new generation of diverse leaders driving New Zealand’s future economic growth and social prosperity.
