Message From CEO
Fast Retailing embraces diversity as one of its most valued principles. Our general philosophy is that the clothes we make should serve to enrich every person's life, and in the case of UNIQLO LifeWear, it is apparel that is MADE FOR ALL—for everyone around the world. Accordingly, our products must be created by a diverse group people and based on a rich mix of human insights.
We believe a culture of inclusiveness can engender great respect for each other’s values. This empowers us to learn from each other and to continue innovating and transforming our business for customers.

John C Jay President of Global Creative
How can you have new ideas, new inspirations? How can you appreciate different cultures, perspective, or experiences?
The answer is simple…surround yourself with different types of people, with unique personalities, from different backgrounds and cultures. Live a life of diversity and celebrate the wonderful differences in people. Diversity is important if you seek a quality of life based on respect and humanity.
Taku Morikawa Group Executive Vice President
I think a diverse culture is one where people who have completely different ideas, experience, backgrounds, and skills can learn from and respect each other. It describes a group of unique personalities who share the same goal to work as one team.
Miyuki Isozaki Group Senior Vice President
To provide products and services that satisfy all customers around the world, all employees working at Fast Retailing must work together as one team on a daily basis. Fast Retailing is engaged in a variety of initiatives to maximize diversity, and we will continue to enhance our efforts in this area.
Serena Peck Group Senior Vice President
To me, diversity means having a broad range of perspectives, ideas, and hearing the voices of those with differing experiences and points of view. It also means welcoming different opinions to make the best decision, and making all participants feel their voices are valued. Diversity is a form of empowerment.
Diversity is important because our customers are diverse. To best serve them, we need to understand their needs, tastes and perspectives. This is critical for us to be successful on a global scale.
Mari Kogiso Director, CEO office, Diversity and Inclusion
Diversity is about accepting and respecting others.
It means listening to others' opinions, and not only listening, but also understanding and acting.
In other words, it is caring for others.
FR established the Diversity and Inclusion team in the CEO office last year under the strong commitment of management. We will promote diversity and inclusion in every sense, including gender, nationality, sexual preference, and disability.
