He rau kotahi tangata. As an organisation we strive to be as inclusive as possible. We embrace diversity and harness our multiple talents.
It takes a great team to produce a great piece of advice or implement an initiative. When we leverage our talents, expertise, cultural perspectives and diversity of thought we have great teams.
We have employee-led groups that support inclusiveness. This includes a social club, waiata group, Rainbow network and mental health awareness, meditation, yoga and community initiatives.
Many of our people come with international expertise in the environment. Across MfE, we are always looking to build our capability for working with iwi, hapū and Māori.
Through sharing experiences we build a more in-depth understanding of Māori perspectives and world view and we incorporate this into our work. We offer te reo Māori and resilience workshops to all our staff.
