About Us

We understand the value that disabled people have for us as employers, but also for all of New Zealand.

Currently made up of the members of the Accessibility Tick, but with a plan to go beyond it, the NZ Disability Employers’ Network (NZDEN) is a group of employers committed to being better employers, serving their customers better, and playing an active part in supporting disabled and neurodiverse people to succeed in their communities.

Honouring "Nothing about us without us"

We realise that this needs to be done in partnership with disabled and neurodiverse people.

We partner with organisations from across the disability sector to ensure that we are working with disabled and neurodiverse people to create a New Zealand that works for them, allowing them to realise their personal aspirations.
