The New Zealand Accessibility Attitudinal Survey 2018 was launched earlier this month, and the findings will be absolutely invaluable for us here at Be. This re...search will ascertain how New Zealanders currently 'think and feel' about disability and accessibility, and will also map attitudinal shifts over time.

If you have 10 minutes, offering your perspectives through this survey is an easy way to make a meaningful contribution to the work of organisations who are setting out to ensure all New Zealanders can work, study, play, and reach their full potential.

The survey wraps up Sunday 25 February 2018. Please share through your networks – there is a $500 Prezzy card up for grabs too! Link:

PHILIP'S BLOG: Emotional agility – vital for #diversity and #leadership

The TEDTalk below by psychologist Susan David is remarkably profound and well worth a watch. She eloquently attaches her notion of emotional agility to leadership, courage and diversity, making the point that what we judge as negative emotions – and often try to deny or avoid – are equally as...

Reposting after mental health enquiry announcement. Please forward to Ron Paterson

Yesterday I spent the day watching the 2011 NZ Conference on Suicide Prevention run by the Mental Health Foundation. At the end of the day I quipped on Twitter: "A whole day watching the 2011 NZ Suicide Conference online … I feel a bit like slitting my wrists." While being a little irreverent I wa...
