Following on from winning the inaugural Hunter Campbell Diversity & Inclusion award at this year’s INFINZ dinner, Lee Marshall, Founding Partner of Hunter Campbell, caught up with Barbara Chapman to discuss all things Diversity & Inclusion.
Diversity & Inclusion has quickly become fundamental to businesses talent planning approach the world over, with more discussion and demand than ever before regarding diversity of thought and diverse hiring plans, pay parity, and a focus on Women in business and the LGBT+ community.
Barbara’s impressive career includes CEO and Managing Director of ASB Bank and she currently holds independent directorships at NZME, Genesis and the New Zealand Initiative. Barbara’s focus on diversity and inclusion stems from her commitment to equality. Her initiatives are inspiring and essential to the evolution of the future of New Zealand business’s approach to D&I. An institution like INFINZ introducing the Diversity & Inclusion award is a nod of acknowledgement to all companies committing to pioneering D&I strategies within their own enterprises.
