Every one of us has something in common: we all want to belong
Global Inclusion and Diversity at Mastercard
Global Inclusion and Diversity means more to us than bringing together people with different backgrounds. It is a belief that our differences enable us to be a better team – one that makes better decisions, drives innovation and delivers better business results.
We strive to create meaningful connections, inspire acceptance and cultivate a culture where we all belong.
“You need to harness the collective uniqueness of those around you to widen your field of vision – to see things differently, to fail harder, to innovate, and to question everything. Widening that field of vision means widening yourworldview.” - Ajay Banga, CEO
Global Inclusion Council
We strive to make measurable differences every day and our Global Inclusion Council (GIC) reflects this. The board of directors for our Global Inclusion Office helps guide our collective vision to ensure we use our actions to cultivate a culture of inclusion and belonging throughout Mastercard.
Our GIC brings a global perspective, with members representing all of our business regions – North America, Latin America/Caribbean, Europe, Asia/Pacific, and Middle East and Africa.
"Building diverse teams is just one part of the equation; we also have to create an inclusive culture where employees, in all their diversity, feel valued and respected. Inclusion is a leadership skill that has to be developed. When we do it right, it's better for business and our communities." – Randall Tucker, Chief Inclusion Officer
Global Business Resource Groups
More than half of Mastercard’s employees are part of a Business Resource Group (BRG) – self-governed groups that are comprised of individuals who come together based on similar interests or experiences.
Members of our BRGs invest their time and resources into cultivating an inclusive culture that, not only drives business results, but also helps every employee feel a sense of belonging at Mastercard.
Our story goes beyond diversity, to a global inclusive mindset

- We offer our employees compensation and benefits to support their entire experience both personally and professionally.
