  • Infrastructure Strategy Q&A with Geoff Cooper

    Rautaki Hanganga o Aotearoa – the New Zealand Infrastructure Strategy 2022-2052 is the culmination of two years’ independent investigation and incorporates feedback from more than 20,000 New Zealanders via consultation, submissions, meetings and workshops.

    It sets a vision for how New Zealand’s infrastructure can lay a foundation for the people, places and businesses of the country to thrive for generations.

    We’re pleased to provide this opportunity to hear from Geoff Cooper, General Manager of Strategy at the New Zealand Infrastructure Commission, Te Waihanga.

    In this webinar, Geoff will discuss key points of the strategy then take questions from the audience.

    About the presenter

    Geoff has a background in global policy having worked for the United Nations, the United States Treasury and the Federal Reserve.

    He is a former Chief Economist for Auckland Council, where he worked on infrastructure, housing, regulation and financial policy.

    More recently as Chief Economist at PwC, Geoff has contributed to the economic appraisal of a range of large infrastructure projects, including Wellington’s Let’s Get Wellington Moving programme, Auckland Light Rail, Hamilton to Auckland High Speed Rail and Queenstown’s Way to Go programme.

    He holds a Master of Economics with First Class Honours from the University of Auckland and a Master of Public Affairs from Princeton University.

  • Closing the gender and ethnic pay gaps

    Ensuring people are paid fairly is a fundamental human right. In Aotearoa New Zealand, the law does not allow discrimination based on gender or ethnicity – the Equal Pay Act 1972 makes it clear that equal pay and pay equity are legal requirements. 

    Yet gender and ethnic pay gaps persist. In 2021, men in Aotearoa New Zealand earned on average 9% more than women, and pay gaps for Māori, Pasifika and other ethnic minority women were wider than for European women. 

    In 2018, the Government set up the Equal Pay Taskforce within Te Kawa Mataaho, the Public Service Commission, to address pay gaps in the public service, which is making good progress to ensure remuneration and HR systems, policies and practices are designed to remove all forms of bias and discrimination. It also provides advice, support and oversight in relation to pay equity claims across the public and private sectors.

    So what can we learn from the Taskforce?   

    Join members of the Taskforce to hear about the drivers of pay inequities in Aotearoa New Zealand and actions your organisation could take to address them.  

    The webinar will include:  

    • An introduction to key drivers of gender and ethnic pay inequities
    • What is being done in the public sector to eliminate pay gaps
    • The latest developments around pay equity
    • Steps you can take to address pay gaps and engage with pay equity in your organisations

  • ACE New Zealand Conference 2022

    To do better business, we need big thinking. Professional services consultants throughout Aotearoa are operating in an environment of uncertainty as we navigate the challenges of local government reforms, skills shortages, COVID-19, disruptive technologies and environmental change.

    We need to think carefully about the future of work – how to create a first-class consulting experience, engage authentically, develop our workforce, lead productive teams, deliver on climate change and sustainability commitments, and harness technology to work smarter, not harder.

    While we've been forced to rethink how we do business as usual, we also need to think about what our mahi looks like in the years ahead.

    We need to lift our game as a sector, and that means reconnecting face-to-face, being in the same room as one another, coming out of our silos and making new connections to shift our focus to the future.

    The 2022 ACE New Zealand conference will explore the challenges and opportunities that professional services consultants face in these uncertain times and provide practical business solutions that can be applied in small, medium and large firms.

    You will hear from innovative and inspiring speakers who will offer local and global perspectives on the issues we face, allowing us to think about the future of work with a broader lens.

    We encourage you to take this time to work on your business, not in your business, in a collaborative space surrounded by leaders who are delivering critical technology, construction, infrastructure and environmental solutions for Aotearoa.

    Rotorua is a remarkable location where we will be surrounded by natural beauty, thriving industries and manaakitanga – we hope to see you there.
