TOKYO, Japan ― Renesas Electronics Corporation (TSE:6723), a premier supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, announced today that it has been awarded the highest “Gold” rating in the PRIDE Index 2023 for the second consecutive year.

The PRIDE Index, established by work with Pride in 2016, evaluates workplace initiatives for LGBTQ+ and other sexual minorities at corporations and organizations in Japan. Its mission is to create an inclusive and accommodating workplace through five key areas: Policy (Action Statement), Inspiration (Educational Activities), Development (Personnel Systems/Programs), and Engagement/Empowerment (Social Contribution/External Activities). The Gold rating indicates that Renesas has met the standards for all five criteria defined by the index.

As part of its commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I), Renesas continues to expand its LGBTQ+ initiatives. With the goal to increase understanding and support for the LGBTQ+ community, Renesas implemented a non-discriminatory benefits policy and provided educational programs and harassment prevention training for all employees globally. Most recently, during the Diversity Awareness Month in October, Renesas hosted multiple events covering topics such as unconscious biases and gender stereotypes in the workplace and physical and mental well-being. Renesas also founded the “Renesas Pride” employee resource group, offering support and networking opportunities for LGBTQ+ individuals and allies. Renesas will continue to foster an inclusive culture and workplace to empower all employees.
