Nissan recognizes the progress the LGBTQ+ community has made towards equality and inclusion in today’s society. Nissan continues its commitment to the community by sharing authentic stories of LGBTQIA+ members who are living their truth, and using their voices to push the community forward on the road to equality. As Proud Partners of Progress, Nissan is committed to being there for the community and wherever their drive takes them.

Nissan’s dedication to the LGBTQ+ community goes beyond Pride Month. Our pledge starts with our own employees. Nissan strives to ensure internal policies and benefit packages that are inclusive of everyone. Our corporate non-discrimination policies are inclusive of gender expression & identity and are included under the same umbrella that protects against discrimination based on age, race, religion, disability, gender and sexual orientation.

Gay Straight Alliance at Nissan (GSAN), an internal employee resource group, serves to be a catalyst for a culture of equality at Nissan that works to help build a safe, respectful, inclusive and supportive environment for all Nissan employees, supplier diversity partners and customers.
