We are thrilled to announce that Spaceworks have been named a finalist in the 2021 Rainbow Excellence Awards.
The awards are held annually and recognise organisational and individual excellence, workplace leadership, collaboration, best practice and innovation.
Spaceworks are finalists in three categories:
– The Partners Life Emerging Award
– The Newmarket Business Association Executive Leadership Award
– The Westpac SME Rainbow Inclusivity Award
We are in good company. Other finalists include the New Zealand Defence Force, Te Kawa Mataaho Public Service Commission, Les Mills International, Kathmandu Ltd and Auckland Council among others.
Awards Director, Martin King says; “Workplaces across New Zealand have had to adjust to a ‘new normal’ over the last 18 months but what Covid hasn’t changed is the importance of championing those organisations and individual heroes striving to improve diversity and inclusion for LBGTI+ people.
“Creating safe working spaces means so much more than the physical workplace – it’s about a culture that allows everyone to bring their true selves to work and know they will be respected, even if they happen to be working remotely.
“Despite the pressures associated with Covid, what the number and quality of this year’s award submissions have confirmed is that those organisations who have previously committed to workplace inclusion have not wavered from that commitment.”
Spaceworks congratulates all the finalists on their hard work to achieve this recognition.
The awards are scheduled to be held on Friday 1 October so watch this space.
