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.
Within ANZ we are focused on:
- raising awareness of LGBTIQ+ issues through education to promote respect and inclusion
- providing support through networks, information 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 Gold Tier employer for LGBTIQ+ Inclusion in Australia and Hong Kong, and a Rainbow Tick Accredited organisation in New Zealand. Results of these benchmarks provide us with key areas of focus to inform our approach to LGBTIQ+ inclusion.
Our success depends on us having an engaged, diverse and inclusive workforce, and employees who deeply understand and connect with their colleagues, our customers and communities across our 34 markets.
ANZ is proud to have an LGBTIQ+ network available to our employees since 2007. The aim of the ANZ Pride Network is to be a voice, contact point and support mechanism for both LGBTIQ+ people and allies as well as to increase diversity, inclusion and respect through active engagement of our people.
