Rakuten Group, Inc. (hereinafter referred to as “Rakuten”) has launched “Service Inclusion,” an initiative to provide inclusive services that respect and consider the needs and perspectives of diverse people in all situations. As a first step, the Rakuten Beauty Salon Project, which promotes LGBTQ+ friendly (Note 1) initiatives, will be launched on Rakuten Beauty, a beauty salon reservation site operated by Rakuten. A cheat sheet was released today.
“LGBTQ+ Friendly Salon Cheat Sheet” is a video content that teaches basic knowledge about diverse sexualities, customer service methods, and how to create a salon.It was produced for beauty salon owners and employees under the supervision of external experts. Ta. According to a survey conducted by Rakuten Beauty regarding the use of hair salons (Note 2), it was found that “I was told that it was normal to have a relationship with someone of the opposite sex,” and “I was judged on my style based on my appearance alone, Some respondents said they had unpleasant experiences at beauty salons, such as “My requests are not being listened to.” We also received many requests for improvements and considerations when making reservations and using the salon, so we aim to help run LGBTQ+ friendly salons through this content. Rakuten’s goal of “Service Inclusion” is to respect diverse people, including LGBTQ+ people, people with disabilities, people with children, and people of foreign nationality, and to encourage them to use our services with peace of mind. Rakuten’s services will incorporate the idea of ​​“diversity, equity, and inclusion” (Note 3) that will help you live a life to the fullest. Up until now, Rakuten has not allowed people to receive insurance benefits from same-sex partners (Note 4) through Rakuten Life, apply for family cards for same-sex partners who share the same livelihood through Rakuten Card, and do not have to present a partnership certificate. Rakuten Bank offers housing loans for LGBTQ+ people, and Rakuten Points is a combination of Rakuten Edy, which has a rainbow pattern that symbolizes support for sexual minorities, and the Rakuten Point Card. We have been implementing various initiatives that take into account the diversity of users, such as releasing “Card”.
Based on our “Service Inclusion” initiatives, we will continue to incorporate the concept of “Diversity, Equity & Inclusion” into the various services we provide, and provide services that people from diverse backgrounds can use with peace of mind. We will aim for this. (Note 1) LGBTQ+ is an acronym for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, or queer.
