Simpson Grierson is the first organisation in New Zealand to meet the standard required to be awarded the Rainbow Tick.
A Rainbow Tick recognises that a workplace understands, values, and welcomes sexual and gender diversity. They are awarded to organisations that complete a diversity and inclusion certification process.
Simpson Grierson Chairman Kevin Jaffe says:
“Diversity has always been an important benchmark for us. Being the first organisation in New Zealand to be accredited with the Rainbow Tick is a significant milestone for the firm.”
“We signed up to the Rainbow Tick because we want to make sure our workplace is truly inclusive and supportive of people from different backgrounds and in particular the LGBTI Community. Our goal is to let both our staff and our clients know that we embrace diversity and support our LGBTI staff.”
Michael Stevens, director of the Rainbow Tick Programme says:
“Simpson Grierson should take pride in the leadership it has displayed in the area of diversity and inclusion in the workforce.”
