Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Statement
Nomura Group Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Statement
Nomura Group positions "Diversity, Equity and Inclusion" as one of the fundamental factors in promoting sustainable growth through addressing today’s societal issues.
The Nomura Group's greatest asset, the diversity of its people, is a source of competitive advantage and innovation.
We aim to create a diverse and inclusive workplace that provides fair and equitable opportunities in all areas, not just training, assignment, evaluation and treatment. In doing so, we seek to empower all employees to realize the full potential of their individuality and talents.
Diversity is a fact. It is important to speak up and act based on our diverse ideas and experiences1.
Equity recognizes that each individual has different needs and circumstances. By allocating the exact same resources and opportunities to everyone, we may create unequal outcomes. Hence, equity is giving our employees what they need to be successful by allocating resources proportionately based on need, and by creating an equitable space where everyone can meet their objectives.
Inclusion is creating a space for recognizing, valuing, and fully leveraging different perspectives and backgrounds to create a sense of belonging and to help employees reach their full potential.
1 We define diversity as diverse ideas and experiences including but not limited to nationality, race, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, religion, creed, social status, disability, values, etc.
