The State Services Commission exemplify diversity in a report stating that “developing a more diverse workforce is not just about ethnicity. Diversity involves gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, education, national origin, and religion. Diversity encompasses a broad spread of experience, culture, perspective and lifestyle of those who live in New Zealand.”
Other scholarships will be offered with the purpose of increasing diversity of people involved in
Surveying and Spatial.
