With a workforce that’s 55% female — including a 50/50 representation on their board — Stuff.co.nz is on a mission to ensure their overall diversity efforts achieve the same great strides that did with gender diversity.
June 2021 marks the release of their first ever Diversity and Inclusion report, which reveals that it’s as multi-layered as it is promising. This Diversity and Inclusion Pathway leaves no diversity stone unturned: equity for parents, gender, ethnicity, disabilities and non-visible differences like sexual orientation, social class, heritage, religion, unseen disabilities, different perspectives and thought processes, education, family status and age, are all considered.
We want to see the deep, rich diversity in our communities reflected in our workforce and content.
They’ve taken a number of agenda-setting approaches that foster inclusive cultures from the ground up, as well as participating in occasions that celebrate diversity: Te Reo classes for all staff and celebrations of NZ Sign Language Week, for example.
