    Infrastructure NZ is delighted to hold a Market Briefing Session on the Housing New Zealand Programme, generously hosted by Deloitte.

    Housing New Zealand is the country's largest provider of social homes, with 64,000 properties under management nationwide. Housing NZ has recently announced a multi-year programme to significantly ramp up the redevelopment of its existing property portfolio for new, fit-for-purpose social, affordable and market housing in Auckland. 

    Hear from key Housing NZ and HLC (formerly Hobsonville Land Company) decision makers on how you can participate in this unprecedented residential development opportunity.

    Please note: This is a member-only event.

    Women in Infrastructure are doing amazing things, but all too often they are virtually invisible. We want to encourage more women to work in infrastructure, right across each part of the industry, but this won't happen unless young women can see visible role models in the media.

    WIN and IPENZ have collaborated on a joint media training event to give you confidence to be interviewed on radio or TV. Join our media training specialist to learn skills that will help you develop your ability to be a spokesperson in the industry.

    Join us for a fun event where we will be seeking volunteers to be 'media trained' just in front of the WIN/IPENZ audience. Thanks to Deloitte, drinks and nibbles will be provided on arrival.

    • 31 Aug 2017
    • 5:00 PM - 7:30 PM
    • Treasury, Level 5, No 1 The Terrace, Wellington

    Research makes is increasingly clear that companies with more diverse workforces perform better financially. McKinsey's latest findings reveal that companies in the top quarter for gender or ethnic diversity are more likely to have financial returns above their national industry medians. More diverse companies are better able to win top talent and improve their customer orientation, employee satisfaction, and decision making, which leads to a virtuous cycle of increasing returns. 

    Treasury has recently been acknowledged for their diversity and inclusion work at the annual Institute of Public Administration New Zealand (IPANZ) Public Sector Excellence Awards, which recognises organisations that are leading the drive for a diverse workforce, representative of all New Zealanders.

    In parallel, Infrastructure NZ has recently launched the Women's Infrastructure Network (WIN) to address the paucity of women in the infrastructure sector, and grow both the visibility of women and the number of women in leadership roles. An Advisory Board was established to guide the direction of the network, whose first action was to carry out a membership survey to identify whether there was an issue with diversity in the infrastructure sector, and most importantly, whether there was a need for a network such as WIN. The responses confirmed support for the group and more importantly, confirmed that diversity was seen as an extremely positive contributor to the overall success of business.

    Join us to hear Gabriel Makhlouf, Chief Executive of The Treasury speak on the importance of diversity of thought for both Treasury and New Zealand. The results of the Diversity Survey will be launched, and a panel discussion moderated by Margaret Devlin, Chair of the WIN Advisory Board, together with Gabriel Makhlouf, John Rae and Nicki Crauford will debate the benefits and challenges of growing diversity in the infrastructure sector. Networking and refreshments will follow.

    • Kensington Swan, 18 Viaduct Harbour Avenue, Auckland

    Hankering to step into the boardroom, but not sure how to begin your governance journey?

    The team behind the Women's Infrastructure Network NZ understands the unique challenges women in the infrastructure sector face. Following a successful event in Wellington earlier in the year, we are hosting this event again by popular request for our Auckland-based members.

    Join industry leaders Ngaire Best (The Treasury), Felicity Caird (Institute of Directors) and Claire Denison (Kerridge & Partners) to learn what you can do to accelerate your journey into the world of directorships. A question & answer session will follow, and the evening will conclude with networking and canapés.

    Kensington Swan will be our generous hosts for the evening.

    • The TSB Bank Arena & Convention Centre, 4 Queens Wharf, Wellington, 6011

    Building Nations is the premier event on New Zealand’s infrastructure calendar. The two-day Symposium provides the opportunity for public and private sectors to come together to progress thinking and advance best practice in national infrastructure development. At its heart, the conference is about discussing and agreeing what must be done to ensure New Zealand’s infrastructure is not just fit-for-purpose, but that our infrastructure supports sustained improvement in the quality of life for all New Zealanders, now and into the future.

    This year, Building Nations will will focus on exploring New Solutions for Infrastructure Challenges, and will be held at TSB Bank Arena, Queens Wharf in Wellington on 26 – 27 October 2017. 

    It is the forum for Ministers and key public officials to announce major infrastructure policy directions, and sets Infrastructure NZ’s agenda for action for, and on behalf of, its members. 

    Attended by over 450 industry and public sector leaders annually, Building Nations provides sponsors with an unparalleled opportunity for profile amongst the leaders of the country and the infrastructure industry. For sponsorship opportunities, please contact Sarah Lang on 021 733 434 or via email sarah.lang@infrastructure.org.nz

    Due to a busy Wellington events calendar, we strongly suggest you book your accommodation now, as space is already limited.
