Employee Resource Groups

Mattel employees have created and lead eight voluntary Employee Resource Groups (ERGs). These affinity groups are designed to foster an inclusive workplace, enhance engagement, and bring together colleagues across the global organization. Our ERGs organize learning opportunities that elevate important issues and encourage open, honest conversations. They also inspire and facilitate positive change in our corporate culture and operations.


Black at Mattel (BAM) was founded in January 2008 as our first ERG and strives to be a prominent internal source of information, insight and celebration of Black culture within Mattel.

LatinX en Mattel

A network that empowers, celebrates, and promotes diversity & inclusion of the Latinx talent and culture at Mattel. We focus on the professional development of our members and seek to inspire them to make a positive and meaningful impact at Mattel and in our local communities.


Mattel Asian Diversity Exchange (MADE) creates awareness of relevant Asian American issues, shares cultural insights and celebrates a rich and diverse Asian heritage at Mattel. MADE also engages in community outreach and volunteering.

Mattel Playmakers

Mattel Playmakers brings wonder to our employees and their families by providing a wide range of entertainment, including events, group outings and a variety of giveaways.


Our Proud Employee Network (OPEN) is geared toward addressing the needs of LGBTQ+ employees and members of the external LGBTQ+ communities in which Mattel works and plays.


PARENTS aims to build a company-wide network of employees committed to giving Mattel parents a voice, providing meaningful resources and information, and ultimately helping parents achieve work/life harmony.


Sustainability for Employee Engagement & Development (SEEDs) sows an inclusive culture of sustainability at Mattel, to reap a future in which we all can play. The group focuses on integrating sustainable practices and behaviors at Mattel, at home and in the community.


Women of Mattel (WoM) exists to foster community, provide enrichment and inspiration to its members, and assist in attracting, retaining and promoting female talent. The group focuses on providing a structured mentorship program for employees, hosting an annual women’s conference and connecting with employees in real-time on relevant cultural, personal and professional growth issues.
