UpFRONT Questions of diversity

There are, for those playing The Diversity Game, choice of three answers to the question. Picking the right one is not the only aim of the game that is being formally launched in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch this month. Played by around 20 people in half-day event or up to 180 at big leadership events, the game offers stimulating and safe environment in which to discuss issues of workplace diversity and talk about some tricky employment issues.
Already popular offshore – it won an award for one of the top 10 training tools in the US – the game has been adapted for New Zealand organisations by the EEO Trust and Simpson Grierson and trialled with EEO Trust Employers Group members. So far, it’s proved an engaging, effective and credible tool, with CHH Futurebuild CEO Linda Sewell describing it as outstanding and “a clear way to convince senior leaders to take diversity seriously”.
