Allianz’ insurance entities globally certified for gender equality

At Allianz, we place a lot of emphasis on equality and fairness: Allianz’ insurance entities are now globally EDGE Assess Certified.* The certification covers almost 80 percent of Allianz Group’s global headcount and 68 individual entities. Almost 40 percent of those even achieved the more advanced level ‘EDGE Move’ – showcasing the progress they have made towards equality in critical areas including pay and career progression.    

EDGE was launched at the World Economic Forum 2011 and stands for "Economic Dividends for Gender Equality" – and is the leading global assessment and business certification for gender and intersectional equity.

Over the past years we have achieved considerable progress on our journey to equality: we have gender balanced succession plans for our Global Executive positions, 25 percent of all Boards of Management across Allianz companies are women. Several employee networks have been established promoting gender inclusion. Another big step was committing to achieve Equal Pay – same pay for the same work, irrespective of gender – by the end of 2021. 

However, we do not want to stop here and are committed to continue our journey towards gender equality.

The transformative power of diversity and inclusion

Diversity in skills, opinions, and backgrounds has been proven to enhance innovation, cohesion, and quality of work.
