Diversity means more than race and gender. At St John we understand the value of creating environments where many different voices are heard and all opinions are valued and considered.

These voices come from people who may or may not be of the same gender identity, race or ethnicity, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, access need, personality type and/or thinking style. 

At St John we draw upon these unique experiences, perspectives and backgrounds to advance our organisational goals and better help the communities we serve.

 St John at Pride 2017

 Here for Life, Here for Love

St John personnel were excited to walk in the Auckland Pride Parade again in 2018, with our CEO Peter Bradley leading the way. Peter knows the importance of celebrating diversity and has given the team reign to ‘rainbow-up’ St John.

The Pride Parade is for everyone, regardless of their orientation, to join together to celebrate equality and diversity in Aotearoa. At St John New Zealand, each of us is different and unique, but we are united in the shared mission to step forward when help is needed. For better. For life. 

Greater diversity allows us to harness a richer range of ideas, insights and perspectives to better understand and serve our communities. As an inclusive organisation, St John is committed to being a wonderful place for LGBT+ people to work and volunteer, and we proudly gained Rainbow Tick certification in January 2017. Celebrating throughout Pride Festival, we are also excited to be part of the Big Gay Out this year. We look forward to seeing everyone there.
