NZHIT Board Diversity Policy 2018
· It is recognised
governance best practice that diversity has a positive impact on
decision-making processes and the overall performance at the board level, which
flows through to the competitive advantage and performance of the organisation.
· In the context of this
policy, diversity refers to a mix of gender, skills, age, background,
experience, race or culture. In
addition, as a national membership organisation, NZHIT will use best endeavours
to ensure that its Board provides regional representation and industry
experience as a matter of necessity.
· This policy establishes
NZHIT’s support of the principles of diversity on its Board and the methods by
which it will endeavour to meet these principles whilst ensuring Board members
are appointed on merit, so the goals and objectives of the organisation are met
on behalf of its members.
