Our diversity story so far


Our diversity journey 

 

At Morrison Low we have taken a pragmatic, people based and authentic approach to diversity and inclusion.  We have explored different ideas and created a programme that is suitable for a dynamic trans-Tasman firm.  

We require our programme to be meaningful and authentic and not a corporate tick box exercise. We know that diversity and inclusion is a continuous journey and so are constantly reviewing to ensure that we are upholding our values.

Our diversity and inclusion journey started in 2018 with Morrison Low’s Board adopting the policy.  The policy is now bedded into the Morrison Low way of doing business with the implementation of the programme.  Our updated policy adopted by our Board in November 2022 is here Diversity Policy

Key achievements

Key achievements to date include:

 

  • Cultural competence - Morrison Low has committed to a comprehensive cultural awareness programme for all its New Zealand consultants over the first half of 2022.  An external provider has taken us on a journey with an exploratory training programme designed to deepen our understanding of Te Ao Māori.  The cultural competency training has been valuable for the New Zealand consultants in their day-to-day jobs, personally as citizens as well as for team building. 
  • Improving our website information and presence - Improved our website information to show how our teams connect at each office, have fun and connect in meaningful way.  A LinkedIn story was posted on ‘Our Diversity Story’ in July 2022. 
  • Diversity training for managers - Three managers have participated in different diversity training in 2021 and 2023.
