At Mercari, we are taking on challenges in order to fulfill our mission of creating value in a global marketplace where anyone can buy & sell.
There is more diversity in the world than any of us can imagine. The ideas of Diversity & Inclusion are essential for Mercari in order to achieve its mission because they are key in creating a society where everyone can be themselves and reach their fullest potential. We work towards promoting Diversity & Inclusion in true Mercari fashion, utilizing our unique combination of the experiences, knowledge, and views of our diverse members and our culture as a Japanese company.
We already have members from all over the world with many diverse backgrounds at Mercari: people of different ages, sexes/genders, sexual orientations, ethnic/racial groups, religious beliefs, physical abilities, etc. We strive to provide equal chances without dividing people into groups, and to create an organization and environment where everyone can perform at their best.
In addition, we believe that it is important not to set quantitative goals when promoting Diversity & Inclusion. This is because making decisions based on numbers goes against our ideal of respecting the diversity inherent to all individuals. Meaningful efforts towards diversity are reflected not in the quantitative goals many companies and organizations tend to rely on, but in the thoughts and behavior of every person within.
That is why we are committed to the following:
- Providing fair chances for members of all backgrounds
- Fostering a culture of learning to allow everyone to reach their full potential
- Creating an organization built on trust so that everyone working here feels like they truly belong
Our first step is for Diversity & Inclusion to take root in the thoughts and actions of all members within Mercari.
