Mizuho is committed to equality and diversity. The group strives to create a high performance culture where employees are valued, included, heard and treated with respect and dignity. They are therefore committed to providing a professional and harmonious work environment that offers equal treatment for all employees and opposes all forms of discrimination including discrimination on the grounds of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation. All members of staff, whether part time, full time or temporary, will be treated fairly, equally, and with respect. Mizuho’s aim is that remuneration, recruitment, promotion and retention should not be affected by irrelevant considerations or stereotyping.

The President & Group CEO of Mizuho Financial Group (MHFG), Mr. Sato recently outlined the strategy, areas of focus and primary initiatives that Mizuho will undertake to foster growth and promote the involvement of all of Mizuho’s diverse workforce in its Diversity & Inclusion Statement, which can be viewed here. 

Mizuho also recently became a founding signatory to the HM Treasury’s Women in Finance Charter in the United Kingdom. The Charter is a genuine commitment by HM Treasury and signatory firms to work together to build a more balanced and fair industry that reflects the government’s aspiration to see gender balance at all levels across financial services firms. 

Mizuho values and respect the differences between all people that they employ. By promoting and ensuring an inclusive environment Mizuho can build on the collective, and complementary, skills, knowledge, background and networks of its people. Valuing diversity is an integral part of our strategy for competing in the current and future marketplace, and driving business performance and success.

Mizuho extends its commitment to equality and diversity to the communities in which it operates, through its Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives.
