“We commit to setting up the Allianz employee network for disability inclusion globally. This network will contain local chapters in national entities and a Global Disability Inclusion Board, representing employee voices at Group level. The key focus will be on removing barriers, stigmas and taboos, and to foster an environment where people with disabilities feel they can succeed.
More specifically, the aim is to foster a company culture that attracts and retains talents with disabilities, improve technical accessibility in processes and digital applications as well as physical accessible e.g. in buildings, raise Allianz’s disability confidence at all hierarchy levels, create awareness of disability-inclusive communication, use internal and external good practices or celebrate key dates like International Day of People with Disabilities.
The Global Disability Inclusion Board will have a seat in the Allianz Global Inclusion Council and provide advice on topics related to disability. In recognition of intersectionality, this Board will also engage with the other Allianz employee networks to amplify Allianz’s diverse voices and join efforts towards inclusion overall.”
