Mind the Gap
We are committed to reducing our gender pay gap. We have signed on and are committed to reporting on pay gaps to 'Mind the Gap'(external link), Aotearoa New Zealand's first pay gap registry.
We are working collaboratively with the Public Service Associate (PSA) to deliver on the Kia Toipoto Public Service Action Plan goals to close gender, Māori, Pacific, and ethnic pays gaps, and creating a fairer workplace for all.
We made a commitment in 2020 to reduce our gender pay gap. Since then we have reduced the gap year on year.
