Michele Embling wins Hunter Campbell Diversity Award

PwC chair Michele Embling was named the 2019 winner of the Hunter Campbell Diversity and Inclusion Award at the annual INFINZ awards announced in Auckland last night.

The first female chair of PwC New Zealand, Embling has been instrumental in developing the firm’s diversity and inclusion goals including the introduction of a 40/40/20 gender mix target. She has also played a significant role in raising awareness of ‘unconscious bias’ and establishing flexible working at the firm.

Embling says, “I am honoured to have been awarded the Hunter Campbell Diversity and Inclusion Award. It’s important that everyone has the opportunity to thrive and reach their potential. I firmly believe that a diverse environment, where people are empowered to voice their opinions and be their true selves, can and will, benefit everyone.”

Embling was the inaugural Chair of the Global Women – Women in Leadership programme, and is the co-chair of Champions for Change.

The Hunter Campbell Diversity and Inclusion Award recognises an INFINZ member who has proactively encouraged and nurtured diversity with the aim of achieving equal gender and diverse representation at all levels of an organisation.
