The Insurance Group was established in August 2019. The Group has 8 members who lead some 32,000 employees, across Australia and New Zealand.

Based on these learnings, the Group identified two key themes for focus: bold and inclusive leadership; and dismantling barriers for carers and normalising flexibility.
