Key results for 2016

Executive Management

38% of our Executive Management are women.  

Subsidiary Boards

39% of directors on our Group subsidiary boards are women.


54% of our workforce is female.

Why is this important?

To set our business up for long-term success, we need a workforce that reflects the customers we serve and our communities. To help us get there, we need to provide our female employees with support and encouragement to reach their full potential.

What do we do?

We’re committed to improving female representation at all levels – and our Board has set measurable objectives for achieving gender equality. In December 2016, we achieved the 2016 Workplace Gender Equality Agency Employer of Choice for Gender Equality citation. We are proud to achieve this recognition as a demonstration of our continued drive and commitment to achieving gender equality.

Preparing women to be the leaders of tomorrow

Hiring women has never been about 'making up the numbers'. It's been about finding the right people for the right roles. We have mentoring and networking programs to provide women with opportunities, such as NAB Board Ready – which prepares women for board positions in the future.

We’re focused on fairness

We are committed to fair and equitable remuneration for all employees that is consistent with our market and performance framework. We actively address barriers to equal pay between men and women. That’s why our gender pay gap continues to decrease and sits below the industry average.

We’ve also extended our 12 weeks’ paid parental leave to eligible parents at NAB, regardless of gender.

We believe it’s important to recognise the interdependencies at play when it comes to equality. In 2013, we became the first major bank in the country to introduce a domestic violence support policy.

We also know that that when women in business are visible it inspires change. We’ve signed a pledge to participant in more events for women. And as business leaders, we try to ensure that events we participate in have a gender balance.
