Nissan Finds Strength in Diversity

Nissan is diverse at every level with over 42 nationalities represented at our European Headquarters alone.

It's this diverse workforce that makes us interesting. We thrive off new thinking and differing perspectives. That's why we encourage and take full advantage of the mix of backgrounds, genders, nationalities, ages, and lifestyles found among our employees.

This means our people are representative of the unique personalities found within the communities where we do business around the world. This makes us powerful. So if "the power comes from inside", then our diversity defines the strength of that power.

Woman's Development

In a male dominated industry, Gender Diversity requires special focus.

Our aim is to be best in class in the Automotive Industry and raise the women representation in top management positions from 16% to 20% over the next 3 years.

So Nissan has developed a set of specific programmes and actions in order to improve women representation in all areas and at all company levels.

Nissan specifically focuses in jobs where women are underrepresented like Engineering or IS/IT.


In line with the law related to gender equity published on 5th September 2018, Nissan publishes its gender equity index enabling to measure potential salary gaps between men and women (index valid in France).
