DIVINQ (Diversity Inquiry)


An online and offline process designed for young adults, particularly senior high school students, that creates space for a light-hearted and fun yet meaningful and exploratory conversation. The conversation aims to generate empowerment, understanding and self-acceptance by encouraging creative thinking about values, beliefs, assumptions, diversity, human rights and a myriad of other things. No DIVINQ is ever the same.

DIVINQ was piloted successfully with its sister project Unique Sense during 2009 and 2010 with a group of students from Mt Roskill Grammar School. We are now looking to expand into other schools and youth organisations. DIVIQ creates a powerful means to manifest diversity as the natural synergy of similarity and difference, uniqueness and commonality. It helps young people understand that diversity exists in all people, in all places, at all times.

For schools, the project specifically addresses six of the eight core NZ Curriculum values, namely:

  • innovation, inquiry, and curiosity
  • diversity
  • equity
  • community and participation
  • integrity
  • respect
