Last night, MasterCard was named sixth on DiversityInc’s Top 50 Companies for Diversity ranking. This recognition represents the third consecutive year that the company has been ranked in the top ten.
In celebrating the company’s efforts, DiversityInc founder and CEO, Luke Visconti, noted how MasterCard exemplifies an inclusive corporate culture. “The company’s diversity and inclusion efforts, led by President and CEO Ajay Banga and Chief Diversity Officer Donna Johnson, include a focus on using business resource groups for talent development.”
During the evening’s festivities, MasterCard was also recognized on three of the 2015 Specialty Lists:
- Top 10 Companies for Recruitment
- Top 10 Companies for Employee Resource Groups
- Top 10 Companies for Global Diversity
At MasterCard, diversity and inclusion is not just the responsibility of one team or a few individuals. Rather, we see diversity and inclusion as a central element of our culture. In accepting DiversityInc’s Special Award last fall as Top Company for Inclusive Culture, Banga noted how diversity and inclusion are ingrained in the way MasterCard does business and supports the growth of our teams.
“This is a wonderful recognition of our colleagues across the globe,” said Johnson. “In order to be successful in providing consumers and businesses a convenient and safe way to pay and be paid, we need to ensure that we’re expanding traditional definitions of diversity to include diversity of thought, experience and function.”
The DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity annual ranking of leading public and private companies began in 2001 and celebrates their commitment to workplace diversity.
