More balanced gender equality by 2020 is our goal. And here's how we plan to make it happen.

Women and girls make up over half of the Australian population. They are our customers, our people and our community. We’re committed to standing up and being accountable when it comes to gender equality in the workplace.

Our responsibility to our people – and to the whole Australian community – is to make equality a reality. Not only because it’s the right thing to do, but because it makes good business sense.

Some of the key focuses we have in place include:

  • We’ve made a commitment; from our executive leaders through to our entry level roles, every level will have 40%-60% female representation by 2020.
  • We’ve increased the number of women in senior roles, we regularly review gender pay equity and many of our people work flexibly.
  • We’ve also launched the first social bond to specifically promote workplace gender equality. The bond enables institutional investors to invest in supporting Australian organisations that champion women and equality in a positive way.
  • And in the community, we’re also backing the NAB AFL Women’s Competition, and we’ve been corporate leaders when it comes to supporting women who have survived domestic violence.
