Sponsorship

The second NZ Disability Employers’ Network Conference ‘Disability Inclusive Pathways’ will be held on Thursday 11th and Friday 12th August 2022 at the Novotel Lakeside Rotorua, New Zealand.

Sponsorship revenue allows the creation of a highly valuable conference that can be delivered at a price point that maximises participation.

This year's theme 'Unlocking True Potential' will consist of the symposium, social and networking opportunities, and a pre-conference half-day 'Re-imagine Recruitment' around inclusive recruitment processes.
