Our equity, diversity and inclusion vision

Our diverse workforce and inclusive culture help us make better decisions and be more innovative.

Fostering a sense of community and belonging

Equity, diversity and inclusion are core values at ANZ, helping us to foster a strong sense of community and belonging.

By understanding, accepting and valuing each other, we can ensure fair access, opportunity, and advancement for all, while supporting our people to be their true and authentic selves.

Together, our diverse workforce and inclusive culture, help us make better decisions and be more innovative. This makes us a better bank for our customers and helps support our vision – ‘to shape a world where people and communities thrive’. 

Our aim to be 'best in class'

We recognise that these values - and our commitment to them - are key responsibilities for ANZ, as Aotearoa New Zealand’s leading financial institution.  We've set ourselves the ambitious target of being ‘best in class’, and through our investment in equity, diversity and inclusion we seek to continue to be regarded as an employer of choice.  

ANZ is committed to attracting talent from diverse backgrounds and with a wide range of experiences. We recognise that this benefits our customers, colleagues, partners and investors. 

Our aim to be an equal outcome employer

We’re working towards becoming an ‘equal outcome’ employer – one that takes a proactive approach to addressing the barriers experienced by some in our society. We welcome applications from people of all backgrounds, particularly historically under-represented groups (for example, Māori and Pasifika), and those returning to employment following career breaks. 

Our Affinity Network Groups (ANGs)

ANZ proudly sponsors several staff affinity groups:

  • Abilities Network Group
  • Aotearoa Forward Network Group
  • Asian Network Group
  • Indian Network Group
  • Māori and Pasifika Network Group
  • Pacific Regional Network Group
  • Pride Network Group

At ANZ we're committed to our diverse workforce and inclusive culture, and ensuring we have a vibrant work environment that encourages the talents and aspirations of all our people, while also recognising the uniqueness of each employee.
