The 2015 Equal Employment Opportunity Trust Diversity Awards were held last night in Auckland, and a team from Russell McVeagh attended to represent the firm as finalists in the Empowerment Award category.
The Empowerment Award celebrates innovative responses to gender balance in the workforce. Our firm was delighted to be one of the finalists profiled in a video for this category.

Russell McVeagh’s Diversity Project began in early 2014, and has continued this year with the introduction of a range of new policies to support diversity. We are proud of the EEO’s recognition of our achievements so far, and excited about our ongoing diversity initiatives to support the success of all our staff.
We would like to thank all our partners and staff members who have taken part in the firm’s diversity project, and especially those who agreed to be a part of the firm video summarising our diversity efforts.
The Awards Gala was a fantastic evening and our team was truly inspired to hear the wide-ranging efforts from other companies in the New Zealand market who are also committed to diversity across gender, culture and ability.
Russell McVeagh would also like to congratulate clients ANZ Bank New Zealand for winning this year’s Empowerment Award out of nine finalists, and Vector Limited for winning the Workforce Award and Supreme Award on the night.
