As an insurer, our purpose is to secure Australians’ futures, and as part of that we are dedicated to helping to tackle social issues and promote equality in the workplace. We believe that enabling all people to participate equally at work, empowers innovation and individuals to succeed.”

Further commenting on the win, Head of Diversity and Inclusion, Edyta Torpy said, “At Allianz, diversity, inclusion, respect and belonging are the core of our values, and are key enablers of our business success. These guiding pillars are fundamental to creating an environment where our people can be their best and do their best – for each other and our customers. I'm proud of both the recognition and also the work that we have done to date – across gender and LGBTI inclusion, cultural diversity, accessibility, reconciliation and flexibility.
