Thank you to all the organisations and individuals who have made their support of the inclusive Pride Pledge values visible in our community. Without your proud support we would not be able to work towards increasing visibility, raising awareness of LGBTTQ+ issues and needs or run "rainbow" workshops to help make our workplaces safe.
A very big thank you to you all for your support
The Queenstown Pride Pledge Community is the founding Pride Pledge Community in Aotearoa / NZ and it was from the support of this dynamic little town that this initiative has grown. This community has, since day one, engaged with rainbow training opportunities, supporting local pride events and sincerely doing their best to become a more inclusive and a safer town for all. If you are in town or from town, please remember to support those who support us.
Our community has a very engaged and supportive patron, Karen Boult, Mayoress (Queenstown Lakes District Council), of Ngāi Tāhu descent.
"It is my great honour to be patron of the Pride Pledge. I am immensely proud of our district’s commitment to championing tolerance, inclusion and diversity. This initiative encourages and rewards work environments which provide all LGBTTQ+ people with a safe and healthy workplace where they are free to be themselves.
As I have been, you will be thrilled to see that so many of our local businesses have wholeheartedly embraced the pledge and proudly display their commitment to it.
Our family too, through our work and community engagement, stand side by side with our local businesses in recognising that diversity builds strong communities and vibrant societies and we think that should be celebrated!"Go to the Queenstown Pride Pledge Community Supporters Page
The K'Road Business Association has signed up the local K' Road Community as the inaugural Pride Pledge Community in Auckland. This is Auckland first business Association sponsored Pride Pledge Community. We are currently in the process of launching our community drive for individual businesses to take The Pride Pledge and sign up, so watch this space.
Founded in 1924, the K' Road Business Association (KBA) is an incorporated society whose aim is to foster the economic development of the K' Road precinct. It does through delivering a comprehensive programme of marketing and events, networking opportunities and advocacy to local bodies. It is a partner with Auckland Council in its city-wide Business Improvement Programme (BID Programme) and derives its income from a separate rate collected by council from business and property owners within its precinct boundary and returned to the KBA.
It is governed by an executive committee and a constitution outlining its rules of operation.Go to the K' ROAD Pride Pledge Community Supporters Page
The Newmarket Business Association has signed up the local Newmarket Community as a Pride Pledge Community. We are currently in the process of launching our community drive for individual businesses to take The Pride Pledge and sign up, so watch this space.
The Newmarket Business Association (NBA) came into existence in 1937. In the early days business owners and residents formed the committee to represent members and report to the local Borough Council. Representatives would attend Council meetings and share members’ concerns as it pushed for change or defended local rights.
After amalgamation into Auckland City in 1989 the Business Association governance continued to be driven by a group of committed people who were determined to ensure Newmarket’s voice was heard …. all giving their time voluntarily. Today the Newmarket Business Association is lead by Chief Executive Mark Knoff-Thomas, funded under The Auckland City BID Programme is a partnership model. This offers the best chance of achieving positive business and economic outcome of business districts, and also offers opportunities to continue to push for positive change, just like at Newmarket's founding.
Today, Newmarket bills itself as Auckland's premiere fashion, shopping and entertainment district.Go to the NEWMARKET Pride Pledge Community Supporters Page
