Equity, diversity, and inclusion framework
This framework was approved in 2018 as a University Policy.
It underlies the way in which our University incorporates equity, diversity, and inclusion goals and principles in its management, and is underpinned by our aspiration to be a vibrant, creative, supportive, and inclusive environment that encourages the recruitment, development, and retention of a diverse community of talented staff and students.
There are many benefits to working at Te Herenga Waka—Victoria University of Wellington, including being part of New Zealand’s top research university.
Among these benefits is our commitment to creating a safe, inclusive and supportive environment that values diversity and encourages equitable opportunities for all staff. We allow for flexible working arrangements, there is childcare available on campus, and we provide a generous parental leave package, and support for academic parents returning to work.
Support for students who are parents
We welcome students with children and understand the challenges of juggling family commitments with study and research. We support you to balance study and parenting in a variety of ways.
