The Auckland Chamber of Commerce wants to know if you have too many White fullas working for you

The e-mail from the Auckland Chamber of Commerce wants to know how “diverse” your workplace is. That, of course, is PC language for how many white fullas do you have?

If you take the time to spill the beans on the colour of your employees’ skin there may even be a prize in it for you.

Hi [redacted]
Would you like to be in the draw to win a new 64GB iPad Mini 4?

Can you spare 10 minutes to help us build a current picture of diversity in the New Zealand workplace?

Diversity Works New Zealand, with the support of the Auckland Chamber of Commerce, is conducting the October 2017 New Zealand Diversity Survey.

This survey has been running for four years, attracting more than 7000 responses from across the country, and the results have helped develop a much clearer picture of what diversity means to New Zealand businesses, where our strengths lie and the challenges we need to address to achieve more inclusive workplaces

“More inclusive” of course means less of those pesky white fullas and more brown fullas and fullesses.

This bi-annual research survey, carried out this year in partnership with Massey University, is providing critical insights into the diversity issues that are a priority for New Zealand companies – insights that we can share with you and your organisation.

Who is really behind making ” diversity” (less white-skinned men) a priority for business? To me, the priority is to make a profit not to appease social justice bullies. In my friend’s business, the majority of her staff have brown skin. She chose them because they are great at their jobs and really hard workers not because of the colour of their skin. She would be horrified to think that by hiring them she has ticked a diversity box just as she would be horrified if she was told she should hire white skinned workers to make her staff more diverse

To participate please click here to complete the survey before 5pm on Thursday 12 October 2017.

Our iPad Mini 4 prize is thanks to Vodafone New Zealand, a Diversity Works partner and keen supporter of workplace diversity

Thank you in advance for your time and contribution to this valuable research […]
