No. 8 | Mastercard


  • Mastercard is committed to the principle of equal pay for equal work. Each year, Mastercard reviews every role in the company and benchmarks its pay to the external market. Mastercard also assesses compensation decisions for potential pay disparities by gender and offer employees multiple channels to raise pay disparity concerns.
  • To support Mastercard’s Center for Inclusive Growth’s mission (established as an independent subsidiary of Mastercard), the company tapped its employees to bridge the gap between technology and social good by using their expertise to tackle today’s greatest societal issues. Through these specialized volunteer projects, employees work with Mastercard’s charitable partners, analyzing data for public good to develop solutions with the greatest impact.
  • Mastercard proudly operates Girls4Tech™, its signature education curriculum focused on STEM with employees serving as mentors for girls ages 8–12 to support future careers in the fields of digital convergence, big data, fraud detection, cryptology and more.


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.

“Diversity drives our innovation. We believe if you only surround yourself with people who look like you, walk like you and talk like you, you will have the same blind spots. You will miss the same trends. You will miss the same curves in the road.”
