Valuing our People 

The diversity of our employees – across the spectrum of thought, belief,  generation, sexual orientation, gender or gender identity, race, ethnicity, disability and experience – makes us stronger, and is essential to our ability to fulfil our purpose of making financial lives better, and achieve our business strategy of responsible growth.

It is through our diversity that we are able to bring our clients different perspectives and experiences, helping us better serve their unique needs. And our inclusive workplace means that our employees can be themselves, achieve personal success and contribute to the responsible growth of our company.  

Disability Advocacy Network (DAN)

DAN supports employees with a disability — as well as those who have family, friends or clients affected by a disability.

Inter-Generational Employee Network (iGEN)

iGEN connects all generations — from Millennials to Baby Boomers — deepening appreciation for the positive impact bringing different generations together can have on the company.

Leadership, Education, Advocacy and Development (LEAD)

LEAD provides access to advice, coaching and professional interactions that help attract, develop, advance and retain women at all levels of our company. We have a long heritage of supporting women’s economic empowerment and leadership, both within our own organisation and through external partnerships. One illustration of our commitment is our signing of the Women in Finance Charter which reinforces our position as a global leader in striving for gender equality.

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Pride

Through LGBT Pride, LGBT colleagues and visible allies help to create an inclusive environment where differences are valued and respected, and where employees are encouraged to bring their whole self to work, and reach their full potential.

Military Network (MilNet)

MilNet brings together ex-service personnel, and friends and family who support the diverse military population, by assisting charities and support groups.

Multicultural Leadership Network (MLN)

MLN supports the rich diversity of backgrounds we have in our company, and strives to engage with promising young students from under-served populations through a variety of external partnerships.

Parents and Carers Network (PCN)

PCN brings together and provides a supportive community for employees with caring responsibilities for children, other family members and loved ones.
