Acting Director's Update - July 2017

This year, the Office of Ethnic Communities ran our 6th Ethnic People in Commerce (EPIC) conference in Auckland. Over 300 attendees had an opportunity to connect with 13 government agencies and network with speakers and other attendees. A range of diverse speakers, from established businesses to start-ups, discussed their experiences in embracing technology, innovation and diversity. There were a lot of stimulating conversations on and off the stage, and I would like to thank everybody who attended and provided feedback. The Office will now consider all the feedback received, and take a partnership approach to establish the way forward for EPIC.
