Tackling Inequity to Improve Outcomes Conference
Using an equity approach for improving public services in New Zealand
9 - 10 Dec 2020Te Wharewaka, Wellington
New Zealand has an issue with the inequity of social outcomes that users of its public services experience. Outcome’s such as higher mortality, morbidity rates and prison population statistics do not lie; there is a problem and a different approach is required.
Equity approaches recognise the structural racism that exists and the need for resources and action to be targeted in a way that allows effected communities to overcome the disadvantages they experience. This conference reviews the elements of the approach and its evidence base. Providing case studies and insights from across a range of sectors, to enable government and public service organisations of all kinds to embed the approach and tackle their own equity challenges.
Key themes include:
- Understanding racism and implicit bias and their impact on equity
- Increasing Māori and Pacific workforce representation
- Strategic organisational approaches to equity
- Equity approaches in healthcare
- Addressing public service access issues
- The impact of the pandemic on equity
