ANZ operates in 34 markets with representation in Australia, New Zealand, Asia Pacific, Europe, America and the Middle East. Our workforce represents 200 cultural and ethnic backgrounds and speaks over 90 languages.

We consider an inclusive and culturally diverse workforce a critical ‘people foundation’ for delivering our super regional strategy. We have a plan to systematically build, celebrate and leverage the diversity of our workforce and drive an inclusive environment across the organisation for strategic advantage. 

We want to achieve a workforce that reflects the diversity of our customers and the communities we operate in. It’s all part of our commitment to understanding our customers and their world better than anyone else. 

With this in mind, our priorities are to:

Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP)

Our RAP is a roadmap outlining ANZ's commitment to social and economic participation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians. Our RAP is monitored by ANZ’s RAP Governance Committee and the Australia Division Diversity Council to ensure we deliver on our commitments, commitments remains relevant and ensuring we achieve our RAP’s objectives.

In 2016, we are proud to have worked in partnership with Reconciliation Australia to develop our 4th Reconciliation Action Plan that reflect our renewed commitments over the coming years.

In support of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural awareness and reconciliation, ANZ is proud to make available our cultural awareness learning module for general use.

Māori & Pasifika in New Zealand

Māori, as the discoverers and first settlers of Aotearoa, together with their culture, form an integral part of New Zealand’s fabric. In fact, the way in which Māori contribute to the New Zealand story as a whole is what makes us truly unique as a nation.

Māori share close whakapapa relationships with peoples of the pacific and combined they make a real positive impact on the a multi-cultural NZ.

ANZ is committed to supporting Māori & Pasifika development, through our Māori & Pasifika staff, our engagement with Māori and Pasifika communities, and through our relationships with Māori & Pasifika customers.

Māori & Pasifika staff

Several years ago a group of like-minded staff came together to form 'The Māori & Pasifika Staff Group'. Our goal is to ‘Develop strong connections with our people, within a supportive environment, to make a difference to our Māori & Pasifika communities.

Our staff have led the celebration and recognition of Māori & Pasifika cultures within ANZ and our customer communities and our commitment has been recognised by the Māori Language Commission*.

*ANZ was a finalist in the 2015 Māori Language Awards - Ngā Tohu Reo Māori.
