Leading the Change We Want to See

Our company’s greatest strength is the collective talent of our people. Each of our colleagues brings a unique perspective, background, and experience that individually makes us valuable — and together, extraordinary.

At Marsh, our approach to inclusion and diversity is deliberate. We set out to intentionally facilitate a culture of inclusion and understanding, enhancing the colleague experience.

We strive to be the employer of choice in our industry by creating an inclusive environment, where every colleague is valued, respected, and heard. We are committed to investing in programs that benefit and support the communities in which we work and belong.

Through our relationships, we are able to make a positive, sustainable impact on our global and local communities. In New Zealand, this includes our relationship with Variety Children's Charity, whilst globally this includes The Cherie Blair Foundation, Missing Maps and Junior Achievement.

The more diverse our backgrounds and experiences, the more we can achieve working together. We believe that inclusion means more than acceptance – it means belonging.

We deliver our diversity and inclusion ambitions through a range of strategic cultural initiatives championed by our executive, as well as our Australian and New Zealand Inclusion and Diversity committees.  Our Colleague Resource Groups bring together passionate individuals who are working to drive change to realise the greater good through Marsh in specific areas.

Marsh McLennan is proud of the people we work with, from New Zealand, Australia, Fiji and beyond. To stay relevant and connected, we seek out expertise from industry leaders whilst celebrating and harnessing our diversity and inclusion agenda across the Pacific.


Marsh PRIDE strives to foster an inclusive environment by raising awareness of LGBTIQ+ issues, building a culture of empowerment, providing networking opportunities and helping to drive business development. Marsh PRIDE Resource Groups collaborate globally and within Marsh McLennan businesses as well as PRIDE networks across other companies in the insurance industry.
