Gender and ethnicity pay gap 

Our people are the most important part of our organisation. We want our people to feel they are treated equally and valued for the work they do. Since our establishment in 2018, we have progressively reduced our gender pay gap, and over the past year we have extended our pay gap analysis and action planning to include ethnic pay gaps too.

Celebrating diversity 

Our people's networks celebrate diversity, provide safe spaces, and encourage thought-leadership across Te Tūāpapa Kura Kāinga. Each group has a focus on diversity, support, connection and development, and they lead different initiatives throughout the year. Each network is supported by a senior leader sponsor who is passionate about what the group is aiming to achieve. 

Our People Networks currently include: 

  • Green Group 
  • Rainbow Network 
  • Social Club 
  • Whakatipu Mauriora – Mental Health Network 
  • Wāhine toa, Wāhine āhuru – Women’s Network 
  • Waiata group
