Sam Turner Chair, GLOBAL and NSW State Operations Manager, Retail Banking

Everyone has the right to feel comfortable at work and to feel included in work-life conversations and culture. Groups such as GLOBAL provide opportunities for employees to become more involved in events and networking with like-minded people, but also to educate and raise awareness of key issues that affect LGBTI people and their families. This is something that might not otherwise happen without GLOBAL. I believe that corporates have a responsibility to help shape and drive behaviour within broader society, and that this should be as open and inclusive as possible.

At Westpac, I feel that I am able to express myself openly and freely, flexible work options provide me with mobility and opportunity, and career development is abundant. Opportunities are here if I want them – Westpac Group enables me to feel fully supported in my career endeavours.
