Allianz Beyond - our employee network for disability inclusion

Allianz Beyond is our employee network for disability inclusion and currently has nine local networks in place.

Allianz Beyond focuses on raising awareness for disability inclusion, identifying ways to make Allianz more accessible (physically and digitally), creating a safe space for employees to disclose their disability and workplace assistance needs to perform at their best, as well as promoting Allianz as an attractive employer for people with disabilities externally.

Parthiv Mehta, Co-Lead of the Global Allianz Beyond Board:

"I’m very pleased with the recent growth of Allianz Beyond, now represented in nine OEs locally, which demonstrates an existing need from our workforce. Personally, I want to make a contribution to creating an inclusive environment for all, so that people feel safe and bring their natural self to work. Since the topic of disability inclusion is close to my heart and I am based in India, I am anxious to see how the Allianz Beyond journey will continue in 2023 in the region locally."

Marine Palies, Co-Lead of the Global Allianz Beyond Board:

“As a person with an invisible disability, I understand first-hand that disability is a multi-faceted topic that suffers from lots of stereotypes and misconceptions and that still remains a taboo in many cultures, including Europe, where I am located. But why would it be more complicated to talk about new hearing equipment than a new pair of eyeglasses? I’m looking forward to this journey to a “new normal” and am delighted to work with our Beyond network to foster disability inclusion and representation within Allianz.“

Allianz Group joins the Valuable 500 – Our commitment statement:

“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.”
