Equal Employment Opportunities

The Ministry is committed to promoting equal employment opportunities and aims to recruit and support staff that can represent New Zealand in all of its diversity.

The Ministry’s whanau, Ngati Aorere, comprises both Maori and non-Maori. Its main purpose is to develop and implement bicultural activities for all Ministry staff. Staff have also set up a Maori network to offer support to Maori staff and as a forum to work on matters of concern to them as tangata whenua.

The Ministry also has networks for women, Pacific peoples, New Zealanders from ethnic groups and gay and lesbian staff. The Ministry’s HR Adviser (EEO) can put you in touch with these networks.
