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. Our efforts are paying off: the ratio of women managers globally increased from 6.7% in 2008 to 15.5% in 2023, helping to ensure women play a larger role in the decision-making process.
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.
Supporting LGBTQ+ representation
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.
