EP. 117【EN】Beyond Perfection: Nurturing Diversity And Talent In LVMH Japan – Aya Yamanouchi / LVMH Japan, People & Culture Senior Manager
Manage episode 371630347 series 3238000
Combining her passion for fashion and education, Aya-san found a career in developing and supporting talent with the LVMH Group. As she discussed the challenges and opportunities of managing people and the diverse culture within LVMH, she highlighted how the LVMH group has traditionally had a decentralized culture, where you don’t tell the houses what to do. Instead, you have to exercise influence – which paved the foundation for its respect for diversity and celebrating inclusion.
Caught in the culture clash between Japan and France, Aya-san shared how Japan's tradition, which places a strong emphasis on perfectionism, can lead to the fear of making mistakes for Japanese talents. While this quality enables the creation of high-quality products, it can also hinder their agility for adapting in a rapidly changing world. She also pointed out how diversity is not solely about physical appearance, but also the individual's thought process. In Japan and Taiwan, where ethnic diversity is not as prevalent, it becomes crucial to go beyond surface-level diversity and understand there are underlying factors unique to each individual that become essential in fostering an inclusive environment.
"Diversity is counting the numbers, inclusion is making the numbers count,” Aya-san shared this quote from Professor Boris Groysberg at Harvard University. Through deliberate choice, inclusion can be achieved – something that echoes LVMH’s own belief, “diverse by essence, inclusion by choice.”
Lastly, Aya-san discussed the emerging trends and initiatives at LVMH aimed at promoting sustainability. One of these initiatives is the adoption of green technology in the luxury industry, known as New Luxury, which focuses on making a positive impact on the world. A specific example is the introduction of Nona Source, an online resale platform that allows the purchase of high-end re-sourced materials used by LVMH at a reduced cost.
