The importance of Diversity and Inclusion at PayU

 

As a global and multi-cultural organization with varied ethnicities thriving across locations, we realize that our responsibility towards fulfilling the D&I commitment is huge. Therefore, we continuously strive to create a diverse, inclusive and safe environment, for all of our people, communities and customers. Our leaders are committed to creating an inclusive work culture which enables transparency, flexibility and unbiased attention to each and every PayUneer so they can succeed, irrespective of gender, color or personal faith. An environment where every person feels they belong, that they are listened to, and where they are empowered to speak up.

At PayU we have zero tolerance towards any form of prejudice whether a specific race, ethnicity, or of persons with disabilities or the LGBTQ communities.

Diversity and Inclusion Statement

Diversity & Inclusion for PayU is in recognizing the uniqueness of one in many and thriving on the strength of many in one – it is for everyone. At the heart of PayU are PayUneers. And at the core of being a PayUneer is being able to be “U” at the workplace.

 

Our vision is to create a world without financial borders where everyone can prosper; to be a true reflection of this, we aspire to be a workplace that fosters D&I across cultures, genders, races, physical and mental differences & sexualities. We believe in the power vested in the plurality of experiences, empowering our people to thrive with their unique identities while imbibing the distinctiveness fueled by dissimilarities. We enable continuous learning to ensure PayUneers feel empowered to call out any instance of bias, while embracing conscious inclusivity in our DNA.

 

How we do it?

 

By weaving it back to our core values and encouraging its advocacy with every PayUneer.

 

We,

  • Celebrate our Openness to the diversity of opinions that come from a medley of backgrounds and experiences
  • Uphold the Integrity of every PayUneer, by being a supportive colleague, a confidante and bereft of any bias
  • Display uninhibited Courage to bring our complete honest selves to work; we raise a toast to every PayUneer who can celebrate his/her/their identities and is a true ally
  • Take complete Ownership of being inclusive in our actions
  • Facilitate unprejudiced Collaboration with fellow PayUneers, leaders, merchants and partners irrespective of their views and choices’

Breaking down stereotypes

At PayU we love and live our open dialogue culture. Taking a closer look at ourselves, our strategy, actions and initiatives through the D&I lens ensures we not only create awareness and engagement around D&I topics, but also take appropriate action. One example is our series of engaging fireside chats throughout the year and across the globe on topics like Disability Equality at Work, PayU Women in Leadership, LGBTQ representation in tech, and more.

Empowering Women in Fintech and Fueling Gender Equality

The conversation around gender equality is growing stronger day by day. Much has been made to increase female representation in the tech field – and yet there is even more left to do. We at PayU believe, that real and lasting change needs action: from governments and society, as well as from the industry itself. Driving gender equality and empowering women through various initiatives such as an active support community, mentorship programs, and many more is key to our agenda.
