Employee Resource Groups

Our culture of engagement and inclusion

Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) were established to advance diversity and inclusion at Mizuho. Led by employees for employees, ERGs contribute to individual professional development as well as Mizuho’s broader growth by encouraging colleagues to pursue programming that is purposeful and impactful.

They identify issues and opportunities relating to talent, business practices and culture. Since their inception, these groups have focused on programs that foster a sense of community and connection among employees and the firm. Their insights have helped build our brand and have contributed to our existing recruitment and talent acquisition processes.
