Nissan again recognized as an LGBTQ+-friendly workplace in Japan

Work With Pride gives Nissan its sixth consecutive gold award

YOKOHAMA, Japan – Nissan has received its sixth consecutive gold award in Japan from the Work With Pride organization for being an LGBTQ+-friendly workplace.

Nissan is striving to create a workplace that supports diversity, equity and inclusion, and values each employee. It aims to be a truly sustainable company that helps realize a cleaner, safer and more inclusive society. Work With Pride cited Nissan’s active involvement in addressing the needs and concerns of sexual minorities through various internal and external activities.

Work With Pride promotes LGBTQ+-friendly human resource management practices and rates Japanese companies using its Pride Index. The index evaluates corporate policies for LGBTQ+ representation, awareness raising, human resource systems and programs, community work and public relations.

Internally, Nissan regularly promotes e-learning, and holds seminars and other educational activities for all employees to raise awareness and promote understanding. In addition, Nissan has taken numerous steps to create a workplace that is comfortable for sexual minorities. It has established multipurpose restrooms and individualized schedules for health checkups. In August 2019, it started recognizing same-sex marriages and common-law marriages for its marriage-leave program and congratulatory payments.

In fiscal year 2016, members of the community and its supporters within Nissan also launched a self-initiated employee network as one of the company’s bottom-up activities.

Nissan’s external initiatives include sponsoring and participating in the Tokyo Rainbow Pride — the largest event of its kind in Japan — since FY17. This fiscal year, it also supported the event as a member of Specified Nonprofit Corporation Tokyo Rainbow Pride, the host organization.

Globally, Nissan will continue its efforts to create an inclusive work environment where all employees can reach their full potential.
