Major bank in New Zealand supports intersex people


One of Australia and New Zealand’s biggest banks has thrown its support behind the intersex community, announcing that they are backing the Darlington Statement. The statement identifies key priorities for intersex people. Some of these include; legal reform to recognize bodily autonomy, effective rights-based oversight of clinical decisions, alongside access to affirmative health care and the importance of peer support. The bank ANZ is the first public facility in New Zealand to announce the support to the statement publicly. The bank has supported intersex people since 2016 when it launched its Intersex Inclusion & Awareness focus group marking the events devoted to intersex awareness and educating and training the staff about the intersex issues to launch a number of diversity and inclusion initiatives
