The future of work

As someone who works a regular 8.30am to 5.00pm job (plus extra…), I read with interest about a New Zealand trust management company, Perpetual Guardian, and their trial of a four day working week.  That’s working a 32 hour week, for the same salary as a full time employee.

Back where it all began…the story of DPSN

I wasn’t a part of the DPSN team – originally the Diversityworks Peer Support Network – when it began in 2009.  In its first iteration DPSN was a pilot project of Diversityworks Trust run by its original Project Manager, the amazing Anna Nelson.  DPSN started life as both an online and offline venture, aiming to create a network that would bring together peers and stimulate conversation about diversity, complexity and social change.

I joined not long after the pilot, in 2010, and helped to run events as well as moderate the site on its original Ning platform as part of my role as Executive Assistant for Diversity New Zealand, the business run by Philip Patston which powers DPSN.
