About the PRIDE index

The PRIDE index was developed by the voluntary organization "work with Pride" in 2016 and is an evaluation index for efforts towards sexual minorities such as LGBTQ+ people in the workplace. The PRIDE index consists of the following five indicators and is evaluated in three stages: gold, silver, and bronze.

  1. Policy (Declaration of Action)
  2. Representation (Participant community)
  3. Inspiration (awareness activity)
  4. Development (HR system/program)
  5. Engagement/Empowerment (social contribution/external relations activities)

ALLY: In general, it refers to people who understand and support sexual minorities, and people who want to support them, but the Toyo Ink Group positions them as "people who understand and are on the side of all differences."
