Dignity provides a Buy One Give One model for sanitary items in the workplace. Alongside Organic Initiative, Dignity at work is a tangible initiative to encourage inclusivity and diversity in the workplace.
Why did ANZ partner with Dignity?
“We’re really concerned that girls are staying home from school each month because they can’t afford sanitary products and want to do our bit to change that,” says Felicity Evans, ANZ General Manager Human Resources.
“ANZ is supporting Dignity as we want to help our staff and also have a direct and positive impact on girls’ education.”
87% felt that having Dignity at work was important to them.
