Chairperson & CEO
As Chairperson and CEO of EY Japan, Moriaki Kida has led discussions on progressing LGBT+ inclusiveness globally, resulting in human resource policy transformations across EY and empowering future leaders across EY's large footprint. Mori is the Global Unity Sponsor and played an active role in forming the EY global LGBT+ strategy. With his guidance, the Unity network hosted a 24-hour global event for IDAHOTB 2021. This event saw EY Asia-Pacific Regional Leaders, and the Japan leadership team, declare their support for the LGBT+ community as allies. Mori co-signed the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusiveness Statement as part of Asia-Pacific Area Operating Executive, to demonstrate EY’s collective commitment to foster a culture of diversity and inclusiveness in Asia-Pacific. Aided by Mori’s vision, EY Japan pledged support for Business for Marriage Equality as well as the LGBT+ Equality Act (Anti-Discrimination) Campaign. Mori is a known voice for LGBT+ legal rights even outside of EY.
