Allianz arena with lgbt colors

Allianz participates in annual pride parades in cities like Munich, London, Zurich and Minneapolis. On the day of the parade in Munich, we proudly light the Allianz Arena, one of the most prominent buildings in the city, in  rainbow colors.


Being LGBTQ+ at Allianz

With our Allianz Pride employee network, we encourage a corporate culture that values the diversity of all our employees, independent of their gender expression and sexual orientation, makes the most of their talents and creates a working environment free from discrimination. Knowing we can bring our whole selves to work, means we can put all our energy and creativity into our jobs – not having to hide a part of yourself – and contribute jointly towards the success of the Allianz business strategy.

The network aims to:

  • Provide a platform for LGBTQ+ and their supporters within Allianz
  • Raise awareness about the subject of LGBTQ+ and promote mutual respect
  • Establish a network of experts for all LGBTQ+ issues within the Allianz Group
  • Position Allianz as an employer of choice for LGBTQ+ applicants.

Marie-Helene T. from Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty, Lead of the Global Allianz Pride Board:

“As an openly gay woman I am always coming out – whenever I meet new people, whenever I am in new situations, coming out is a continuous process. This is the case with all my LGBTQ+ siblings, and it is why it is so important that the environment in which we work is safe and inclusive to allow us to be who we are. We need to be able to bring our whole selves to work and not pretend to be someone we are not.

At Allianz, we are lucky to have many Pride networks that work together to provide a safe space for LGBTQ+ people and our allies. These networks are also a platform for raising awareness and increasing LGBTQ+ inclusion and visibility, both internally and externally, making Allianz an employer of choice for applicants from the whole spectrum of diversity.” 

Allianz Group has pledged support for the UN ”Free & Equal“ LGBTI Standards of Conduct

Our commitment to the LGBTI Standards of Conduct is one of a series of actions we are taking in support of an inclusive environment for our customers, employees and communities. 

Our Allianz Pride community is excited to support the leadership position our company has taken to fight discrimination and promote inclusion.  We know from experience that our business is stronger when all of us can bring our whole selves to work every day.
