EthnicA 2013

EthnicA Conferences 2013

The Office of Ethnic Affairs work to promote the benefits of ethnic diversity to develop prosperity for every New Zealander.

New Zealand is one of the most ethnically diverse countries in the OECD. Nearly a quarter of New Zealanders were born overseas.  

This diversity helps New Zealand move forward economically, socially and culturally.


Annual EthnicA Conferences bring inspiring speakers together and encourage invigorating debate on issues arising from New Zealand's ethnic diversity.  They are a great place to share ideas and make new friends.
