About Us

The New Zealand Disability Employers’ Network (NZDEN) is a network of NZ employers committed to improving their disability and neurodiversity inclusion and accessibility practices.

Our shared purpose is –

“New Zealand organisations realise the true potential of disabled people, to the benefit of everyone."

Members of the network seek to:

  • Bridge the disability career gap;
  • Break down accessibility barriers to equitably serve all; and
  • Inspire others to action.

But we are more than a network, we are an employer whānau who have a true community of practice and knowledge around disability, neurodiversity and accessibility.

The NZDEN is the home of the Accessibility Tick - a continuous improvement programme that assists organisations improve their disability and neurodiversity inclusion practises.

The network is recognised by the UN’s International Labour Organisation’s Global Business and Disability Network as the key New Zealand body representing businesses in their disability inclusion and accessibility journey.
