Diversity, inclusion and belonging
We believe diversity, inclusion and belonging will help us achieve our strategy and purpose.
We are committed to creating an inclusive culture where we respect and value the different experiences of our people and harness the opportunity and business benefits that these diverse ideas and perspectives bring to our organisation and stakeholders.
Our purpose is to make your world a safer place, and to do this, we need to attract and retain the best people who are passionate about our customers and have a broad range of skills, experiences and different frames of reference. This will enable IAG to drive innovation and competitive advantage, and in turn, help us deliver improved financial performance.
IAG’s Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging (DIB) Framework describes our approach to building a diverse and sustainable workforce that is reflective of the customers and communities we serve, creating a culture of inclusion, and fostering a sense of belonging for our people.
Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging targets
In accordance with our DIB plan, we monitor our performance across DIB and have a number of targets in place.
Women in Senior Management
We have set a target to have women represent 50% of our Senior Leadership roles by 30 June 2023. We define Senior Leadership roles as our Group Executive, Executive General Managers and Executive Managers.
We introduced this new target in 2020 after reaching our initial target of 40% women in senior leadership roles by 2020. As at 30 June 2021, women represented 43% of senior leadership roles at IAG. This is an increase of 2.28% from the 2020 result of 40.72%. More broadly, women represent 59% of our workforce.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employment
Our Stretch Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) was launched in June 2022 and goes through to June 2025.
In this RAP, we have committed to uplifting the employment experience of our First Nations team members and potential new employees through our First Nations Inclusion Plan.
It addresses how:
- IAG attracts and retains our Indigenous team members.
- We will ensure cultural safety at all levels of our organisation.
- We build and grow First Nations talent through our leadership and development programs.
- Maintain our commitment to supporting the CareerTrackers Indigenous internship program.
Our commitment is to increase Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employment to 3% by 2023.
Our First Nations representation in Australia was 1.5% on 30 June 2021. We have developed a First Nations Inclusion Plan to deliver our employee commitments within our RAP, as well as providing resources to help our leaders to achieve our RAP workforce target.
Employee Network Groups
At IAG, we celebrate inclusion and have a rich tapestry of diversity represented in part through our Employee Network Groups (ENGs). Our ENGs amplify the voice of our diverse communities and provide the opportunity for our people to contribute, connect and drive inclusion. Our ENG communities are focused on gender equity, LGBTIQ, First Nations, mental health, domestic and family violence, accessibility, and families and carers.
