ANZ is proud to be the Principal Business Partner of Chief Executive Women (CEW). We have shared goals of increasing representation of women in senior leadership roles and boardrooms and increasing the economic empowerment and financial capability of women.

ANZ’s purpose is to shape a world where people and communities thrive. That is why we strive to create a balanced, sustainable economy in which everyone can take part and build a better life.


We are building an engaged, diverse and inclusive workforce, ensuring we have the right people to meet external challenges and achieve our business strategy. With greater female representation in our leadership pipeline and executive ranks, we are able to tap into a broader range of leadership styles, experiences, market insights and skills to manage our business and deliver on our strategic priorities.

ANZ has a public diversity scorecard that outlines priorities and targets with measurable outcomes, including to improve the representation of Women in Leadership.

ANZ has introduced a number of policies and initiatives to focus our effort on achieving gender balance in our business and improving gender equity at the most senior and influential levels of the organisation.

In Australia, ANZ continues to be recognised as an Employer of Choice for Women while in New Zealand we are recognised by the United Nations Women National Committee for excellence in Equal Opportunity and Non-discrimination.

ANZ is a signatory to the United Nations Women’s Empowerment Principles and committed to creating a bank where equality, merit and fairness is core to how we operate.
