Mercari Publishes Inclusion & Diversity Statement

Mercari, Inc. (“Mercari”) announces that it has published its Inclusion & Diversity Statement (“I&D Statement”), which summarizes its commitment to creating a more inclusive workplace. 

Since 2018, Mercari has been promoting diversity and inclusion (D&I), aiming to create globally competitive teams that value individual diverse experiences and perspectives. As part of this commitment, it has implemented an external audit, taken actions to correct the gender pay gap, and made other efforts to maintain a working environment without discrimination or inequality of opportunity based on individual characteristics.* 

The new I&D Statement is a renamed and updated version of the D&I Statement, which was formulated in 2019. By updating our stance on inclusion and diversity, we are aiming to strengthen our efforts to create a more inclusive workplace that allows talent of all backgrounds to thrive, while also continuing to promote diversity in the organization.

I&D Statement

We believe that only an inclusive environment will allow us to not just respect the diversity of our members, but embrace it to empower one another to reach our full potential.

To create a more inclusive workplace, we must:

  • Respect each other’s differences and create a culture where we learn and grow precisely because we are all unique
  • Create equal opportunities for all Mercari members so that each person can embody our values of Go Bold, All for One, and Be a Pro
  • Never stand for discrimination or unfair treatment based on an individual’s background, and continue using relevant data in order to improve the environment we share

See the Inclusion & Diversity page on our corporate website for the full text of the I&D Statement and details about Mercari’s initiatives for I&D: https://about.mercari.com/en/inclusion-diversity/

Mercari will continue to pursue I&D one step at a time to achieve its Group mission: “Circulate all forms of value to unleash the potential in all people.”
