At ANZ, improving the representation of women in leadership and achieving gender equality is a business imperative - it’s about accessing the talent, markets and economic opportunities that gender equality brings.
Key initiatives and programs
We report on performance against our public targets through our Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) reporting. Our annual ESG Supplement highlights some of the key initiatives and programs we have put in place to address gender balance, including:
- Gender balanced recruitment practices: ensuring a female candidate is interviewed for every role, and all interview panels contain at least one woman.
- How We Work and flexible working: all roles can be worked flexibly at ANZ, ensuring we are better able to meet the needs of our customers and our staff. How We Work is an evolution of flexible working whereby the vast majority of our teams will work to a 'hybrid' or 'blended' model - that is two to three days in the office and two to three days at home.
- Employee networks: grass roots networks that focus on gender balance issues.
- Return to Work: this program is focused on removing the barriers faced by highly skilled individuals, particularly women, when trying to return to the workforce after a career break.
