New Zealand is one of the most culturally and ethnically diverse nations. The rapid increase in our ethnic diversity poses both challenges and opportunities across various sectors to maximize the benefits of diversity. Auckland University of Technology is a vibrant and diverse university that recognises that success is not defined by gender, gender identity, socio-economic backgrounds, ethnicity or disability. This year, Professor of Diversity, Dr Edwina Pio has been appointed as University Director of Diversity.

Build an App for New Zealand Youth

The Manawatu Multicultural Councils, New Zealand Human Rights Commission, Independent Police Conduct Authority, Multicultural New Zealand and Hui E have partnered to hold a series of youth workshops nationally. The purpose of these workshops are to explore some of the barriers youth face when accessing social services particularly when they require assistance. The workshops will provide a positive environment to interact, discuss these issues and mutually educate and inform.
