Chapman Tripp has been awarded a White Camellia award for its diversity strategy around gender equality.
“We’re delighted to receive this acknowledgment because this issue is very important to us,” said Chapman Tripp Chief Executive Partner Andrew Poole.
The awards recognise organisations that have made most progress in advancing the seven Women’s Empowerment Principles.
We won our award for demonstration of the first of the seven Principles which is to establish high-level corporate leadership for gender equality.
White camellias are an emblem of women’s suffrage and were given to all MPs who voted for the right of women to vote in 1893.
The awards are administered in New Zealand by a partnership of the NZ National Committee for UN Women, the EEO Trust, the Human Rights Commission and the New Zealand Federation of Business and Professional Women.
