Auckland Museum recognised at the YWCA Equal Pay Awards


Thursday 8 November 2018


Auckland Museum is delighted to have won the Community category at the YWCA Equal Pay Awards, recognising the Museum’s efforts to address pay equality in the social enterprise sector.

Catherine Smith, Auckland Museum’s Director of People and Organisation says that the Museum is committed to being relevant and inclusive of the many diverse communities that make up Auckland.

“We are a place for all Aucklanders and making sure we connect with everyone means being committed to treating all our people fairly and by ‘walking the talk’ so all our people can participate fully and feel they belong.”

“We have strong female representation in leadership roles – half of our Heads of Department and our Executive Team are female and women also hold three key positions as Chairs of the Museum’s governance and advisory boards."

“We see pay equality as a vital way to recognise and celebrate the essential role women play in our workforce. It means so much to be recognised as a leader for our work on addressing equal pay.”

YWCA Auckland Acting CEO Kat Doughty says Auckland Museum is a deserving winner in the Community Category.

“Auckland Museum has publicly demonstrated their commitment to pay equity - using their role as a museum and cultural influencer to spark debate on the topic. They advocated strongly for pay equity through the Are We There Yet? exhibition and their staff satisfaction data shows the high priority which the Museum places on its own initiatives for pay equity. They are a stellar example to other organisations in the not for profit and the commercial sectors.”

The YWCA Equal Pay Awards were launched in 2014 to recognise best practice among business leaders.

Auckland Museum’s Are We There Yet? exhibition is currently on and celebrates 125th anniversary of women’s suffrage in Aotearoa while examining our progress towards gender equality.
