MEMBERSHIP TYPES

They are individuals who have previously been formally recognised for their service and/or leadership potential. Full Members are selected via a comprehensive multi-part process that includes completing a full application form, submitting a Statement of Purpose or Video of Purpose, and providing a Letter of Recommendation.

They are individuals who are at the start of their service and/or leadership journey. Associate Membership is open to all New Zealanders aged between 18 and 35.

CORPORATE IMPACT INVESTOR

Corporate Impact Investors are organisations that enable our mahi whilst also investing in their own ethnically diverse workforce and talent pipeline. Corporate Impact Investors grant their 18-35 year old employees access to all our virtual and in-person events and opportunities, including Multiethnic Young Leaders’ esteemed 3 Kapu Kawhe Mentorship Programme. If you’re ready to invest in your ethnically diverse workforce, commit to intersectional Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, and build Aotearoa NZ’s pipeline of diverse future leaders, we’d be delighted to talk to you and answer any questions you have.

Membership is not restricted to individuals of a certain ethnicity, race or background.
