“Diversity and Inclusion” is a source of new value creation.

The Sony Group has a wide range of global businesses, encompassing the electronics, entertainment, and financial services . Our employees have diverse backgrounds, spanning a range of heritages, generations, and genders. Sony’s corporate culture of respecting and understanding the diversity in our global society gives us a significant competitive advantage.

As a core part of Sony’s management policy, I decided to formulate a Diversity Statement, and to promote diversity throughout the entire Sony Group.

Our people are the key to Sony’s continued success. In delivering a workplace where every single employee can feel valued and respected, and fostering a corporate culture that respects the diversity in society, Sony hopes to be a place in which people of all backgrounds can flourish, resulting in new and exciting innovations and value creation for our company.

Sony will actively promote and respect diversity, in areas such as ethnicity and nationality, religion and beliefs, disabilities, gender, age, birthplace, sexual orientation and values, and work styles.
