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.
