NAB Bank is taking a stand against the issues that effect women in the workforce.

NAB employees have come together in a one-minute clip to share the message of equality with the community, coinciding with International Women’s Day.

In the clip, NAB CEO Andrew Thorburn along with other employees show their support for equal pay, take a stand against domestic violence and comment on the acceptance of working parents.

Thorburn, being a dad to two daughters, says he stands for gender equality and so does NAB.

“There are two drivers of change. The first starts with fairness and equity. I absolutely want my daughters to have the same opportunities as my son.

"At NAB, we have close to 30,000 people in our Australian workforce – and every single one of them deserves equal pay for equal work and access to flexibility to manage their work and life.”

Thorburn says his second driver of change is to ensure women have more senior ranks, ensuring there is a business strategy in place to meet the needs of diversity.

The clip finishes with asking viewers, ‘What can we all do to achieve this future and see more women in business?’

NAB isn’t the only bank to get on board with International Women’s Day. Check out the spot from ANZ for #equalfuture.
