CONSULTING

Creating a diverse workforce and an inclusive environment is an ongoing process.  Many organisations have already started on their journey, but need support along the way, others may only be at the beginning of their journey.  We provide diversity planning and practices that deliver measurable gains in staff engagement and productivity, which has a positive impact on your bottom line.

Our consulting services focus on understanding your needs and building a partnership with you to improve your organisational outcomes.  We work with you to provide advice and solutions to create a sustainable workforce, fit for your specific purpose and situation.

We create long term client relationships, ensuring we can provide counsel and support throughout the process of becoming a more diverse and inclusive organisation. 

“In response to client feedback we have designed a process that accurately identifies High Performers from minority groups thereby enhancing the talent pipeline. Talent Map delivers a diverse leadership and specialist bench and maximises readiness and impact.”

We have relationships with key partners including Carers NZ and the University of Auckland. Diversitas and our partners share and actively support local and international research, ensuring our consulting and training solutions can be tailored to New Zealand and trans-Tasman organisations

Testimonials

  • Carol from Diversitas helped us develop our Flexibility Toolkit, which included a policy and process as well as our Diversity and Inclusion policy. It has been great to be guided by templates which have already been developed and then adapted for our business. By not having to start from scratch this has saved us so much time and ensures we are meeting legislation as well as having a practical process to meet our needs. Really enjoy the Diversitas partnership approach so we all learn as we go.
