To celebrate Mardi Gras, ANZ banking group has got into the party mood by launching a series of GAYTMS  (gay themed ATMs) across the city.

 

The bank has bedazzled a slew of ATMS for the duration of  the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, ANZ as a  celebration of diversity and inclusion.

ANZ has commissioned artists to individually decorate ten “GAYTMs” around Sydney. Decorated in colours, patterns and jewels inspired by LGBTI culture, each GAYTM tells a unique story.

The artworks include the “Hello Sailor” GAYTM, designed to celebrate the Defence Force allowing its members to march in uniform for the first time last year and “Pride” representing the rainbow, a symbol of

Mark Hand, Chair of ANZ Australia’s Diversity Council said: “This association is all about encouraging an environment where everyone feels comfortable being themselves at work. You don’t get the benefits of a diverse workforce if some people are expending vast amounts of energy pretending to be something they are not and trying to conform.

“We want the best people to work at our organisation and given how many people identify as LGBTI , we want to make sure that everyone feels welcome here at ANZ – regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity”

ANZ will be donating the operator fess from  non ANZ card holders using the GAYTMs during the Mardi Gras period to Twenty10.
