Gender diversity improves how we work

When women hold positions of influence they can provide new perspectives, potentially leading to changes in policies that are more equitable. This can have an effect on material topics such as pay equity and improving corporate culture by welcoming diverse ideas.

Initiatives for developing women’s careers

We strongly believe in empowering women to lead, and provide tools to aid growth and advancement at all levels of our organization.
Tailored career support

Women employees can access professional development training, mentorship programs and conduct career interviews with career advisors. We hold events to further develop professional skills and provide networking resources to identify opportunities for career advancement.

Executive Dialogues

Through open and in-depth dialogue with corporate leaders and executive management, we aim to further enhance women employees’ leadership skills.

Increasing the representation of women

Nissan has introduced programs around the world to accelerate the hiring and development of women, including offering mentorship and investment in employee education.

Signing the UN Women’s Empowerment Principles

In August 2023, Nissan signed the UN Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs), an agreement based on seven principles established by UN Women and the UN Global Compact. The Principles offer guidance to businesses on advancing gender equality and women’s advancement in the workplace, marketplace and broader community . Signed by the CEO, it is one of the highest levels of formal commitment to championing women and highlights Nissan’s dedication in this area.

Nissan is a place for everyone, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity and expression. Testament to our inclusive culture, Nissan has been awarded the gold prize by NGO Work With Pride for the seventh consecutive year in Japan, recognizing our company as a LGBTQ+ friendly workplace. Work With Pride highlighted Nissan's active engagement in addressing diverse needs through internal and external activities, including e-learning, seminars and educational initiatives. Nissan will continue its global efforts so all employees can be celebrated.
