It’s hard to believe that we’re already halfway through 2019- the year is just flying by!
It’s hard to believe that we’re already halfway through 2019- the year is just flying by! That’s because we’ve been busy working with awesome individuals and organisations who are committed to making New Zealand the most accessible place in the world.
This month we're super excited to be telling the story of a highly-motivated organisation that is reaching great heights. Wellington International Airport has just been awarded a Gold Be. Welcome rating- and is committing to fly even higher to achieve Platinum! Read about this and much more, including the opening of applications for the 10th year of our Be. Leadership programme, below.
And don't forget to keep in touch with us through our social media and newsletter as we’ll be announcing some very exciting news in the upcoming month!
We're so pleased to be able to share with you what’s been happening at Wellington International Airport.
After four years of upgrades and accessibility improvements they have just been awarded a Gold Be. Welcome rating, and are gearing up to reach Platinum- and becoming the most accessible little international airport in the world.
Next month applications open for the 10th year of the Be. Leadership programme. We'll be holding the first of our information sessions in Christchurch on 25th July- and announcing something special on the night!
We're excited to announce a new member of the Be. Welcome team- Brittany Morgan. Some of you may already know her from the awesome work she's been doing with the Auckland Transport accessibility group. We’re so pleased that she has joined us.
This month we brought all our fabulous Be. Employed candidates together for the first time for a professional development and industry training day - with help from our awesome partners at Microsoft.
It’s awesome to see Vancouver Airport increase accessibility for their customers. The airport worked with Canucks Autism Network to develop an experience through which their customers with autism could gain confidence with airport layout and processes prior to flying.
