James Kilty, CEO
"Connecting communities is at the heart of what we do, and it's what brings our people together. Our Powerco whanau do their best mahi when they're able to bring their whole selves to work and share knowledge, perspectives, and ideas openly - it's what drives our approach to diversity and inclusion.
We're proud to have achieved equal gender representation in our leadership roles and gender and ethnicity pay equity. As a purpose-led and future-focused organisation, we believe that change starts within and are committed to making further progress in this area. Over the next 12 months, our diversity and inclusion priorities include growing Māori representation in our workforce, providing cultural competency training for our people and working towards Rainbow Tick accreditation.
Our work towards these goals can only be achieved by ensuring we're aligned in how we work together and is underpinned by 'Ngā Tikanga', our cultural framework and way of life at Powerco."
