Mai Chen, Chair of the Superdiversity Centre for Law, Policy and Business, has been named on The Economist's Top 50 Global Diversity List. Mai Chen is also Managing Partner at Chen Palmer Partners, Chair of New Zealand Asian Leaders, Adjunct Professor for the Faculty of Law at the University of Auckland, and a Director of the BNZ.
Chen is listed in the Top 50 Diversity Figures in Public Life, a category that recognises the achievements of individuals who have used their position in public life to make an impact in diversity. The Global Diversity List is affiliated with the Global Diversity Awards, which produces the annual European Diversity Awards. The Global Diversity List is supported by The Economist publication.
"Mai's research and advocacy on superdiversity and cultural intelligence has put these issues on the map for business, government and for all New Zealanders," said Marina Matthews, co-chief executive of the Superdiversity Centre. "Mai has combined her own experiences as a Taiwanese immigrant to NZ with her public law and policy expertise to really shift the dial on these issues in a country with one of the most superdiverse cities in the world - Auckland,"
