We at Allianz believe that it is important to have a diverse and inclusive workforce. Employing people from different backgrounds and making them feel included is, in our view, a major driving force behind the success of our global company.

Allianz carries out measures to promote inclusion and has a zero-tolerance policy towards discrimination and harassment. This is measured annually in our employee engagement survey.

We are a global leader with a mix of nationalities among our leaders and employees. In Allianz Group, our Executives have 61 different nationalities and 57% of our leadership is not from Germany. We have employees of 76 different nationalities at our global headquarters in Munich.

In Africa, our team members come from 22 different nationalities, not only from African countries but also from other places like America, India, Canada, France and Australia.

The largest share of Allianz employees are between 25 and 34 years old.

Women make up 52% of our workforce and 38% of our managers globally. We are committed to building up a talent pool of women systematically at all executive levels.

In 2022, Allianz was part of Bloomberg LP's Gender-Equality index for the 7th consecutive year.

For Allianz Africa, we strive to promote gender equality as a source of diversity, creativity and efficiency.

Women have always been at the heart of Allianz Africa's growth. They represent 47% of the overall workforce and continue to make remarkable progress in their careers.

Women hold 39% of management positions in Allianz Africa entities, as they do in other group entities around the world.

Furthermore, Allianz Africa has also placed two women in control of its subsidiaries: Adja Samb in Kenya and Adeolu Adewumi-Zer in Nigeria.

The promotion of women to highly strategic positions in Africa continues with the recent appointment of Nandini Wilcke as Regional Director of Mergers, Acquisitions and Transformation.

Like other Allianz entities around the world, Allianz Africa has implemented various initiatives to promote gender parity, but also equal professional opportunities in general, including:

– AZAF4WOMEN initiative which aims to promote women’s leadership through training programs, workshops co-creation, etc;

– JET program to support women in their career development, fostering their mobility across the Group by establishing sponsorship and mentoring systems;

– Creation of flexible employment opportunities in order to allow a balance between personal and professional life.
