Expressions of Interest for the Office for Disability Issue's Nominations Database
It is important for disabled people to be represented on governance and advisory groups, including State sector boards and committees, to provide a disability perspective. Boards work best when there is diversity of skills, expertise, backgrounds, perspectives and ways of thinking around the table. The ODI is often asked by appointing agencies to nominate disabled people for governance and advisory positions, as part of its work in the sector and has set up this Expressions of Interest Database to gather information to identify possible suitable candidates.
The purpose of this survey is to collect Expressions of Interest (EOI) from disabled people with relevant skills and experience, who want to be considered for nominations for governance and advisory positions on state sector boards and committees. This is an opportunity to increase the representation of disabled people on state sector boards and committees, to better reflect the diversity of New Zealand.
