People & culture

We believe a diverse and inclusive workforce is essential to our success.

People are our power

Come grow with us

Rakuten Americas is proud to embrace diversity and inclusion (D&I) and promote these values within the company and among the communities we serve. We recognize this means empowering our people by embracing our differences and what brings us together in a common cause.

Executive D&I Steering Committee

D&I efforts need to happen at every level of an organization. The Executive D&I Committee spearheads those efforts by implementing policies and practices that empower our diverse communities.

I’ve always understood the power of connecting with people from all walks of life. In both my personal and work history, I’ve always sought to create environments where various personalities can get to know each other and experience the degrees of life, love, and humanity that exists in all of us. It’s been an amazing opportunity to bring this innate passion into my role as Executive Sponsor of the Rakuten Americas Black Employee Alliance. Creating new frameworks and systems that proactively advocate for and build connections with the Black community, from individual consumers to business owners, is why I keep pushing forward and will continue to be a diversity, equity, and inclusion change agent.

A diverse workplace values and celebrates the voices of LGBTQIA+ employees. Pride+ upholds this through meaningful inclusion, enhanced visibility, greater unity and connection, and positive representation at all levels of the business.

Before joining Rakuten Advertising, I’d always been passionately involved in employee wellbeing – in particular pertaining to diversity and inclusion. As President of the Rakuten Americas Pride+ employee resource group, I can really effect change by achieving a culture of true inclusion – one that values, celebrates, and encourages the diverse LGBTQQIP2SAA voices within the organization. Upholding and centering my community, providing an identity-affirming professional network, and aiding the recruitment, development, and retention of LGBTQIA+ colleagues make my day-to-day work life all the more meaningful.
