Global Diversity and Inclusion Council

    Diversity and Inclusion ButterflyIt acts as essentially a board of directors for our Global Diversity Office, providing direction to ensure our strategy is embedded throughout the organization.

    Donna JohnsonChaired by our Chief Executive Officer, the GDIC has 18 members drawn from all of the company’s business regions: North America; Latin America/Caribbean; Europe; and Asia/Pacific, Middle East and Africa. It meets six to eight times a year to evaluate different programs, partnerships and other proposals that are presented as potential means of enhancing shareholder value.

    The GDIC’s work, for example, was responsible for our deciding to expand the more traditional definitions of diversity to include diversity of thought, experience and function. The council’s efforts also led to the formation of, and funding for, each of our six Business Resource Groups.

    Within the GDIC, there are three working groups devoted to overseeing specific diversity issues associated with gender, multiculturalism and lifestages. Each of the groups has its own executive sponsor responsible for exploring how our commitment to those issues can drive employee engagement and business growth. This represents just one way the council is aiming to uniquely leverage diversity to enrich MasterCard Worldwide’s brand and reputation.
