The purpose of this report is to provide an update on the Ara Poutama Aotearoa /Department of Corrections Gender Pay Gap Action Plan for 2022-2023.
This document uses different data ranges, and these are stated alongside the data and commentary.
This work is connected to our Council vision, Hōkai Rangi Strategy and People Plan.
The Department is committed to creating an inclusive workplace. An environment where everyone feels safe, valued, respected, and have equitable opportunities to reach their full potential. This work is aligned to our values.
Our organisational strategy, Hōkai Rangi 2019-2024, outlines our commitment to improve outcomes with, and for, Māori. It was developed with Māori and incorporates a Te Ao Māori worldview. At the heart of Hōkai Rangi is the concept of wellbeing for all our people, including our staff, people in our management, their whānau, victims and our communities.
“Kotahi anō te kaupapa: ko te oranga o te iwi” - There is only one purpose to our work: the wellness and the wellbeing of people.
Hōkai Rangi is a transformational strategy identifying changes that are needed now, alongside long-term intergenerational changes. As reported in our Annual Report 2022/23, 34 of the 37 short term actions have now been substantively delivered.
This strategy provides a strong purpose for our people, those who choose to join our journey, and those who stay to guide our journey. We cannot achieve Hōkai Rangi without innovation, new ways of working, and thinking. Our staff diversity brings this strength, along with access to new ideas, skills, experience, and perspectives.
