KITZ wins Bronze Awards in “PRIDE Index 2023”

KITZ was awarded its first Bronze rating in “PRIDE Index 2023”, an index that evaluates corporations’ efforts for sexual minorities (hereafter LGBTQ+).

Since 2015, diversity and inclusion have been one of our key management strategies. We are pursuing to improve “Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I)” in the workplace to achieve our Long-term Management Vision “Beyond New Heights 2030 – Change the Flow.” One of the key challenges in DE&I is raising awareness of LGBTQ+ issues, aiming to be a company that delivers growth through diversity and allows employees to be their authentic selves at work.

・Rainbow Month
・E-learning programs for managers and employees
・Featured webpage on the intranet portal


Future Endeavors
・Review of personnel systems and internal rules
・Renewal of KITZ’s website regarding DE&I (scheduled for December 2023)
