The Superdiversity Institute for Law, Policy and Business is a multidisciplinary centre specialising in analysing the law, policy and business implications of New Zealand’s superdiversity.
“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language
And next year’s words await another voice.”
– T.S. Eliot
These images on the SDI website reflect the unique identities of us all – sometimes still emerging over time and intersectional – not just ethnicity and gender, but all the characteristics that make us who we are. The SDI respects and gives dignity to all identities, however we were born or whatever we chose them to be. All born equal – but different and diverse – and that is a source of strength and not weakness.
Our board tables don't reflect New Zealand's demographic - we need to change that. We are seeking nominations for our new initiative: 100 Diverse, Board-Ready Chairs and Directors. If you bring a unique worldview and perspective that differ from the usual suspects around New Zealand's board tables, we want to hear from you.Learn more
The Superdiversity Institute provides training in cultural intelligence (CQ). All organisations need CQ to be able to know their customers and clients and to be able to relate to co-workers and to manage staff as NZ continues to transform. IQ and EQ are no longer enough, and this is where we come in!Learn more
Undertake the CQ Tick Programme and receive the CQ Tick, which measures the existing level of cultural intelligence and capability of your staff and management so that gaps and strengths can be identified and addressed. You can then build on these to increase CQ.Learn more
