1. Where is the event?

The HR Changemakers Festival is at a Wild & Co event space, 28 Ethel Street, Morningside, Auckland, 1025.

The Festival is for anyone that is responsible for leading and employing people, or working in departments that support the employment of people. HR administrators, generalists, specialists, executives, business partners, HR support partners, CEOs, GMs, Operations Managers and small business owners are all welcome to attend. 

4. Why should I attend?

The Festival is designed to support organisations to be aware of and learn about progressive HR practices to take back and implement in their own organisations. 

With talent shortages, "Great resignations" and "quiet quitting" the reason to focus on the employee experience is more important than ever, especially with future generations entering the workforce with different expectations of the working, and many organisations not currently set up to cater for these different expectations.

Attending the festival will arm you with the latest in Progressive HR practices in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Neurodiversity, Gender and ethnic equality, Wellbeing, Rainbow Inclusion, and Psychological safety.

5. Is the event accessible?

The venue is all across one level so is accessible to all kinds of needs.

We are in the process of sourcing a NZSL translator to translate presentations into sign language live.

The food will be a la carte style, with gluten-free, vegan, and nut-free options. If you have specific dietary requirements, please let us know when you purchase your ticket. 

Tea, filter, and drip coffee and herbal tea will be available throughout the event and barista coffee (with alternative milk options) will be available for purchase in the morning. 


Drinks at the networking will include alcohol-free options so please indulge until your heart's content!

8. What will the dress code be?

This festival is all about challenging the status quo so feel free to wear whatever you feel most comfortable in!

We look forward to seeing you there!
