For 22 years, the Diversity Awards NZ™ have given organisations the opportunity to celebrate the important work they are doing and to be inspired by and learn from others.
The Skills Highway Award honours organisations which recognise the importance of numeracy and literacy. People need to be effective while speaking, listening, reading, writing, problem solving, processing mathematical information and using technology at work. The award acknowledges organisations that developed initiatives to assist their employees with fundamental foundation skills, giving them new career opportunities and pathways.
