Don Quijote Co., Ltd. has received the highest rating of "Gold" for the third year in a row in the "PRIDE Index 2020", an evaluation index for initiatives related to sexual minorities in the workplace (hereinafter referred to as LGBTQ) established by the voluntary organization "Work with Pride".
Since the beginning of our LGBTQ initiatives in 2016 to the present day, we have been working to raise the awareness of each and every employee, as well as create a workplace where all employees can work with peace of mind. We have done this through implementing measures such as conducting training to deepen correct understanding, and introducing a "life partner system" that recognizes same-sex partners as spouses. In recognition of these efforts, we were awarded the highest rating of "Gold" for three consecutive years, starting in 2018. We will continue to respect the diverse individuality of each of our employees, and strive to create a workplace environment where everybody can work with peace of mind.
