Champions make driving inclusion and diversity core to their leadership. Each Champion advocates for greater inclusion and diversity within their own organisation, within their sectors and within the wider public arena where appropriate.

Champions are committed to frank and open discussions about practical ways to increase uptake of programmes and policies that advance diversity. Though Champions act individually, the group routinely comes together to share challenges, solutions and achievements.

These three unique elements enable Champions for Change to be one of New Zealand’s most effective leadership initiatives to drive change:

• The power of the Champions for Change network.
• Internal momentum supported by tangible commitments and resource.
• External voice and collective leverage.
