At Mastercard, inclusion and diversity are about more than bringing together people with different backgrounds. It’s an understanding that when we create meaningful connections, inspire acceptance, and cultivate a culture where we all belong, we are a better team — one that makes better decisions, drives innovation and delivers better business results. By developing regional & functional inclusion action plans, we ensure our work is relevant across the world, focusing on priorities where we have the most opportunity, and holding leaders accountable for driving year-on-year progress. The diversity and skill sets of our people underpin everything we do. This is how we define and drive the culture of decency that makes us a place where the best people want to work.
