With close to 7,000 people across 34 sites, people come to Lion with very different backgrounds and experiences and it’s important to us that everyone has the opportunity to be the best they can be, really make a difference and have a great time doing it. Our Inclusion & Diversity strategy focuses on: Inclusive culture; Gender Equity; Cultural Diversity & Age diversity.
At Lion, we believe in equality because it is the right thing to do. It is why we have closed the gender pay gap, mainstreamed flexible work, introduced Unconscious Bias training, publicly supported Marriage Equality in Australia, are Pay Equity Ambassadors and have taken the important step to implement a 50:50 by 2026 gender target across all of Lion.
Lion Australia has received the 2018 WGEA Employer of Choice for Gender Equality Citation, February 2018
Lion has committed to a goal of 50:50 gender mix by 2026.
Our NZ business won the Outstanding Workplace and Organisational Change & Development categories at the NZ HR awards, February 2018
Work-Life Balance category winner- Diversity Works NZ, August 2017.
We’ve created a place where you can really be yourself. For us it’s not only about the visible differences such as gender, age and cultural background. Our people bring with them different experiences, skills and perspectives. It’s that diversity of thought that challenges our thinking, sparks breakthrough ideas and new ways of working.
We are about the right people for the right roles and ensuring women that are a part of the Lion team have the encouragement and support to be their best. We have a great range of initiatives in place like our Women at Lion and Women in Drinks mentoring programs, along with policies such as LionFlex and Families at Lion recently introducing domestic violence support. We are committed to being accountable for gender equality and pay equity and that is why we report to our people and communities about our progress.
We have teamed up with some great external partners who support us to continue to build an inclusive and diverse workforce and workplace.
