Creating limitless 
possibilities for everyone



We are on a journey to create a workplace and world where everyone has equal access to connect their greatest passions with their fullest potential. That starts with our people and how we lead, with a sense of decency and inclusion.”

Michael Miebach Chief Executive Officer

Diversity, equity and inclusion at Mastercard

We believe in an equitable world. Where humanity unites, prosperity is shared and opportunity is open to us all.​​​​
Our approach
Diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) makes us better. It helps us grow when we bring in different perspectives to foster meaningful connections and create innovative solutions. And it helps advance sustainable change throughout our industry and in historically marginalized communities. DEI is part of our core values and underpins everything we do.
Our commitment

Our intention is to be a company that shows up for people, enabled by a culture of belonging that is rooted in diversity, equity and inclusion and reflective of the people and communities we serve. We commit ourselves to enabling a workplace and a world where everyone feels they belong and unlocking potential for people everywhere. When no one gets left behind, when we move forward together, we can create limitless possibilities for all.

"Diversity, equity and inclusion at the systemic level is the necessary basis for us all to be able to reach our greatest potential. That’s why we believe in creating an environment where every voice is heard and every person feels valued. We are not only creating a more inclusive, just and equitable workplace, but also driving intentionally inclusive innovation to 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.”
Randall Tucker
Chief Inclusion Officer

We strive to maintain a workplace built on decency and inclusion where everyone can thrive.

U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Report

The EEO-1 Report is a snapshot in time of our U.S. demographics and is based on categories prescribed by the federal government. These categories are not necessarily representative of how our industry or workforce is organized. The information provided in the data tables of our 2022 ESG Report offers a more accurate representation of our progress towards diversity.
To align with U.S. government reporting requirements, data in these tables uses traditional gender categories of male and female. Mastercard deeply respects that gender is nonbinary; reporting in this manner does not represent our position on the issue.
