Diversity and Inclusion

Our ‘people’ approach is about diversity and inclusiveness. We're all about supporting our customers, employees and communities, considering important factors like culture, gender, sexuality, age, disability and accessibility. Whether it’s as an employer, or providing a service for customers, we believe it’s important to understand people, and appreciate and respect their differences and needs.


Westpac is one of the first New Zealand companies to be awarded the Rainbow Tick. We believe that our customers’ best interests can only be met through nurturing a culture that celebrates diversity and where everyone is valued for their individual qualities and contributions. Being awarded a Rainbow Tick recognises our commitment to creating a safe and respectful work environment for all LGBTI employees and customers; one that values all diversity, creating a culture of equality and inclusion.
