Increasingly diverse, Auckland is home to people from more than 200 different ethnicities. Our fast-growing city is also richly diverse in age, gender, sexuality, disability, nationality, religion and culture.

Auckland Council has a key role to play in creating a strong, inclusive and equitable Auckland with opportunity for all.

BID Programme Team’s Relationship Specialist Rose Cosgrove says understanding and responding to the needs of our ratepayers, citizens, customers and community is at the heart of what we do.
“We’re committed to ensuring our services meet the needs of all Aucklanders. As part of this we’re approaching business associations to get a better understanding of the needs of diverse business owners and business customers,” she says.

Kim Tay from independent research company, Solution Director, has been commissioned to conduct the interviews in this diversity pilot programme.
