TRANSFORMING HOW WE WORK

Transformation starts at the top, and at Toyota, our leaders are committed to weaving D+I into the very fabric of the organization — to unleash our team members’ potential and ensure Respect for People and Continuous Improvement are more than words.

For leaders like Alok Vaish, Group Vice President, Parts Distribution and Accessories Development (PDAD), D+I is a business imperative.

The PDAD team piloted a new way of engraining D+I best practices into its annual plan and business strategy by partnering with company leaders, Diversity Champions and HR. Together, they created a customized approach to further engage 2,500+ PDAD team members through unique D+I actions including community partnerships such as the team’s involvement with Meals on Wheels, career development opportunities, D+I training and educational support.

The approach has been transformational.

The key to this success, Alok shares, is leading with the intention of creating a diverse environment and then making that intention come alive by prioritizing team member engagement through inclusive opportunities, resources and activities — that moves the needle.

“When you bring people together with different perspectives and thought — a reflection of their diversity — and you’re inclusive by listening and proactively bringing those perspectives together, you come out with so much more than you could have done by yourself,” says Alok.

By creating meaningful, customized approaches through cross-functional alliances and focusing on equality to ensure every team member is heard, teams like PDAD are helping Toyota advance D+I and transform the way we work.
