Report by the Government: UN Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women


Since 2011 IPENZ has been working actively to support and encourage female engineers to enter, remain and advance in the engineering profession. In this submission to the New Zealand Government we applaud the Government’s and others’ work to eliminate gender discrimination in New Zealand. We also promote the work of Futureintech and IPENZ to increase gender diversity in engineering and recommend the Government amend its report to include mention of these programmes.
