DiversityInc named Mastercard the top company in the U.S. for diversity, a recognition of its efforts to ensure opportunity at all levels of the company and harness a wider range of skills and experiences for greater innovation and impact.
“Everyone gains when we build a world that’s inclusive,” says CEO Michael Miebach. “Our commitment to bringing in — and listening to — more perspectives helps us avoid natural blind spots and gives us command of the full picture. That’s good business sense.”
Mastercard moved to the top spot this year after being ranked second in 2022, and was also recognized on the organization’s specialty lists, including first for Asian executives, second for board of directors and fifth for female executives.
“We believe in creating an environment where every voice is heard and every person feels valued,” says Chief Inclusion Officer Randall Tucker. “By driving intentionally inclusive innovation, we can better serve our customers and communities. We believe that by championing diversity, equity and inclusion, we are contributing to a more resilient and more successful organization.”
