Workplace Award Category

Workplaces that embrace diversity often stand out for their culture. It's tough entering the workforce as a graduate, and perhaps even more so for international graduates. We want to recognise workplaces that embrace international graduates and foster cultural diversity.

The judges will select up to two winners in this category. Anyone can nominate a workplace or an individual employee of a workplace, including internal staff within the workplace.

International Student Workplace Award

Examples of relevant achievements include, but not limited to, demonstrated effort to integrate international graduates into the workplace; delivery of events or activities that promote international student or graduate inclusion and/or diversity in the workplace; going above and beyond to help support, settle, and develop international students/graduates in the workplace.

Eligibility Criteria

The Workplace Award is open to all organisations with teams in the Wellington region.

Nominees can be a single employee (e.g. People & Culture Manager, manager of a team with international graduates, or the organisation as a whole. The organisation must employ international students or graduates in a paid position (full time or part-time), or in an internship position, or in a volunteer capacity.

Note: Former recipients of a Wellington International Student Excellence Award in the Workplace category are not eligible to apply under this award category again.
