Diversity & Inclusion

We are committed to advancing Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) at the BCCJ, and this runs through everything we do.

D&I is embedded in our:

  • Governance and operations
  • Recruitment of people
  • Elections for our Executive Committee (Excom)
  • Nominees and Judges for the British Business Awards (BBA)
  • Supplier diversity.


Since April 2012, we have been running D&I programme designed to promote greater understanding of, and develop support mechanisms for, the growth of diverse groups in the workplace in Japan, including:

  • Women
  • People with Disabilities
  • LGBTQ community
  • Generation Y / "Millennials"

We believe diversity to be vital for the future growth and sustainability of the Japanese and global economy.
