From The Company
At Mastercard, inclusion and diversity are about more than bringing together people with different backgrounds. It’s an understanding that when we create meaningful connections, inspire acceptance and cultivate a culture where we all belong, we are a better team—one that makes smarter decisions, drives innovation and delivers better business results. Everywhere we work, we seek to create meaningful connections, inspire acceptance and cultivate a community where we all belong, regardless of — and because of — our differences in age, gender, ethnicity, experiences, abilities and perspectives.
