Communities of Practice

Join a G-REG community of practice to expand your networks, share ideas, and grow your professional knowledge and skills.

Me mahi tahi tātou mō te oranga o te katoa.

Let us work together for the good of all.

G-REG itself is a community of practice, gathered around the field of regulation, and seeking to improve the leadership, culture, practice and capability of organisations and individuals who carry out regulatory work.

Smaller communities of practice are also forming within the wider G-REG community, where they are able to focus on a specific domain. We currently operate three communities of practice.

Each G-REG community of practice sets its own priorities and agenda in line with the broader G-REG purpose.

Members can connect through community chat and collaboration, formal events and meetings, and individual or small group meet ups.  Everyone is encouraged to get to know each other, and to give and receive support as able and needed.

G-REG communities are fostered by kaitiaki (guardians) who organise the more formal elements of the community, and ensure that the community is thriving, connected and supported.

G-REG Regulatory Capability Community

Through the Regulatory Capability Community (RCC) you will connect with others who are interested in improving the people capability of New Zealand’s regulatory workforce so that it is skilled, knowledgeable, collaborative, and innovative – competent and capable to meet the challenges presented by regulatory work, now and into the future.
