A word from our Chief Executive
"We connected with employers to explore the reasons for the low disability and neurodiversity employment numbers in New Zealand. It quickly became clear that employers wanted to do better, but there was a need for better partnership with them.
We established the NZ Disability Employers' Network to work in partnership with business, Government and disabled people to achieve the best possible outcomes for all."
