- Sony Group’s Initiatives for Social Justice and Anti-Racism
One of Sony Group’s core principles is that all human beings should be treated with dignity and respect. At Sony Group, we believe in building a culture that makes business and employee diversity a priority, and diversity is cherished as one of our core values.
In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, we witnessed a global rise in the movement to combat racism and promote social justice after the tragic incidents of police violence against African Americans in the United States.
At Sony Group, top management from Group businesses sent messages of support and encouragement to Sony Group employees and the larger community, and held townhall meetings and other events to foster employee dialogue about the issues of human rights and social justice.
In June 2020, we established the $100 million US dollar Global Social Justice Fund led by the Sony Music Group in the United States, and we asserted our commitment to supporting social justice and the protection of human rights in the long term.
