24 Oct Japanese firms solidify LGBT policy
Congratulations to Mizuho Financial Group Inc. for being trailblazers in this area. So refreshing to see that in a culture and industry where it is uncommon to go against the grain, that this company was bold enough to take this approach. As Hidenobu Mukai (Managing Executive Officer) explains, taking a commercial perspective on diversity is not only the right thing to do ethically, but makes sound financial sense. After all a market opportunity of 6 trillion yen isn’t to be sniffed at.
