New research about equality at work is being released by the Human Rights Commission next Friday 26 June.
Evidently, equal employment opportunities are yet to be realised in New Zealand. The latest equality at work research shows which groups of New Zealanders are doing above average in employment, pay, in achieving leadership roles, and which groups are doing less well. It also shows which groups are the most vulnerable, ie doing worst.
This work follows on from the 2012 research but has more indicators and the statistics collected have been broken down further into their separate components (disaggregated).
The way to access this new research is new.
It is presented as an interactive tool created by Dumpark.com, rather than a hardcopy report. The research results can be accessed by choosing a category and then by selecting various criteria: sex, age, ethnicity and disability. Each category has an analysis page that helps to explain the graphs shown.
Equal Opportunities Commissioner, Dr Jackie Blue explained that this interactive tool makes it possible to track the persistence of inequality over time, and whether or not progress towards equality is being made. It is also makes it possible to track the outcomes of a particular group across multiple indicators.
The research will be live here next Friday.
