2.3 (Changed ) Diversity


OBJECTIVES (all changed)



Wellington welcomes, values, celebrates and

supports the diversity of people.

The diversity of Wellington’s citizens is one of its

great strengths, helping to create a city that is

exciting and stimulating for both residents and

visitors. Diversity enriches the lives of all

community members, produces new ideas, and

provides different ways of looking at things.

Harnessing these positive aspects of diversity is

something the Council is strongly committed to.

The Council wants to create an environment where

people are able to maintain the balance between

retaining and expressing the individual culture

that defines who they are and being part of the

wider community they live in. It is the balance

between these two factors that enables people to

retain their sense of self and their overall health

and wellbeing.

considerate of the needs of people from diverse


2.3b To ensure that people from diverse groups are

2.3c To support people from diverse groups to

2.3d (New) To support and promote a range of events

and celebrations which reflect the diverse

composition of the city.
