The Heritage and Community Language Celebration Guidelines (the guidelines) are a resource the Office of Ethnic Communities developed to support communities to celebrate and maintain their heritage languages. The guidelines use plain language and give practical advice through the process of organising a language celebration.
New Zealand has three official languages: English, Te Reo Māori and New Zealand Sign Language. According to Census 2013, English, Te Reo Māori, Samoan and Hindi are the most widely spoken languages in New Zealand.
Progressing diversity thinking - from Human Resources to Leadership
The Office of Ethnic Affairs is pleased to be part of a new working group drawing together New Zealand’s corporate leaders. Diverse NZ Inc. is a collaboration of some of this country’s biggest and brightest business minds, and the platform has been formed to galvanise businesses to harness the economic benefit, business gain and GDP uplift that results from diverse leadership and diversity of thought.
