Why you’ll love it here

ICUC’s mission is to remind the world
there are humans behind brands. 

Reminding the world that there are humans behind brands means we must be relentless in our commitment to fostering and promoting the diverse span of humanity within the global workforce at ICUC. We support conversations on a daily basis for some of the largest enterprise brands and their communities across the globe, which makes it even more important that we deeply understand and champion diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging. 

Our Commitments in Action

Our mission is to cultivate a safe, supportive and global working community that allows each individual can bring their whole, authentic self to the virtual office every day. 

As a dentsu agency, we pursue our mission in accordance with dentsu America’s core pillars and practices:
