Nominations are now invited for the INFINZ Awards 2021, including the Hunter Campbell Diversity and Inclusion Award.
There is a change to the award criteria for 2021 with the Diversity and Inclusion Award now an organisational, rather than an individual, award. The change has been made recognising that successfully addressing these issues requires a whole-of-organisation commitment. Hunter Campbell has sponsored the award since it was first introduced in 2018.
Founding Partner Lee Marshall says there have been three exceptional winners of the Diversity and Inclusion Award to date, who have all worked tirelessly to make a difference.
“Now is the time to broaden the scope to ensure those organisations leading the way in diversity and inclusion can be honoured for their collective efforts. We encourage businesses to put in a nomination.
“Companies that value and focus on ensuring diverse and inclusive workforces truly reap the rewards – they have more engaged and collaborative teams, they retain their employees and they see the results in the bottom line,” Lee says.
The INFINZ Awards recognise innovation and excellence in New Zealand’s financial and capital markets and they are the leading financial industry awards across New Zealand’s calendar year.
INFINZ, the industry body for finance professionals, is calling for nominations in all categories before Wednesday 24 February 2021.
The Hunter Campbell Diversity and Inclusion Award seeks to recognise and acknowledge an organisation from within the INFINZ eco-system which has proactively cultivated focus on encouraging and nurturing diversity.
Previous recipients of the Diversity and Inclusion Award are Barbara Chapman, Chairman and Independent Director; Michele Embling, former PwC Chair; and Anna Buchly, Bell Gully Chair (pictured with Founding Partner Lee Marshall).
The INFINZ Awards are determined by an expert panel of judges and will be presented at a gala dinner on Tuesday 18 May 2021.
