LGBTIQ+ inclusion

Building a culture of respect for all people and communities is one our key organisational values.

The inclusion of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Intersex and Queer (LGBTIQ+) customers, communities and staff is an important part of that work.

A workplace for everyone

Within ANZ we are focused on:

  • raising awareness of LGBTIQ+ issues through education to promote respect and inclusion
  • providing support through networks, information, training and resources
  • taking action by ensuring unconscious bias is removed from policies and processes and
  • building community engagement through our various partnerships.

ANZ is proud to be recognised as a leading employer for LGBTIQ+ inclusion.

Results of these benchmarks provide us with key areas of focus to inform our approach to LGBTIQ+ inclusion.
