PANZ Diversity Policy

OUR VISION

To empower and support a diverse and inclusive publishing industry in Aotearoa New Zealand.

OUR GUIDING PRINCIPLES

A publishing industry that values:

  • the central role of the Treaty of Waitangi, respecting Māori as tangata whenua
  • the role of Pacific peoples in Aotearoa
  • the diverse cultures of Aotearoa New Zealand
  • equal access or opportunity for people of all cultures, ages, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, abilities and religions

HOW WILL WE ACHIEVE THIS?

  • An active subcommittee to guide diversity and inclusion initiatives
  • Diversity as a permanent element in PANZ Council Advocacy portfolio
  • Membership of and ongoing engagement with Diversity Works NZ
  • Anton Blank (Ora Nui) as special advisor on diversity and inclusion
  • Regular training and support for members
  • Guidance for PANZ staff, contractors and councillors
