Australian anti-homophobia campaigner Jason Ball has participated in an employee forum on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) inclusion.
The session aimed to build awareness and understanding of the LGBTI community, customer base and the work we are doing to create a more inclusive environment for our LGBTI employees.
“Our business operates in 33 countries and building a deep culture of respect for all people and communities will be fundamental to our success. Our focus on LGBTI inclusion is about respecting and valuing people” said Nigel Williams Executive Management Board and Corporate Responsibility and Diversity Committee member. Nigel is also Executive Sponsor of the ANZ Pride Network.
A video collaboration between ANZ, public health not for profit organisation beyondblue and Jason Ball was previewed at the session. The clip aims to extend the impact of Jason’s work to eradicate homophobic language and behaviour in sport and society.
beyondblue is one of ANZ Australia’s 22 Workplace Giving partners. Through our Workplace Giving scheme employees donate to charities and causes they value using their pre-tax salary. All donations are matched by ANZ. Similar ANZ workplace giving programs are in place in New Zealand, Fiji and India.
