Diversity and Inclusion

We’re in this together.

At Auckland DHB we embrace and celebrate the rich diversity that we have on our team, and in the communities we serve. We value inclusion as part of who we are and who we're striving to be. When you work with us, we want you to be able to bring your whole self to work knowing that we welcome and support people of all gender identities, ages, ethnicities, sexual orientations, disability and religion. There are a number of initiatives we’ve embedded internally to continue to promote and educate our people such as creating an internal employee network who champion, advocate and consult on all matters.

 

Accessibility Tick

We’re proud to be the first DHB in New Zealand to be awarded the Accessibility Tick and a foundation member of the programme. The Accessibility Tick Programme will help us progress on our journey to become a more accessible and inclusive place for all employees and prospective employees with any Accessibility Need. We are committed to supporting those with an Access Needs during recruitment, induction and throughout your employment here at the Auckland DHB.

Rainbow Tick

We're also delighted to have been awarded the Rainbow Tick. Being a part of the Rainbow Tick community is a way of ensuring Auckland DHB continually improves our processes, our environment and our culture, to be a great place to work for all our employees, whatever your identify: race, gender, ethnicity or sexual orientation. We have launched two e-learning modules available to all employees to continue to develop an understanding of the Rainbow community and why Rainbow inclusion at work and in health matters, as well as taking part in internal and external events , proudly celebrating the diversity of our staff.
