Creating and advancing universal mobility solutions that successfully give the freedom of movement to all — while addressing the immediate challenges posed by the unprecedented times we are all living in — is not an easy task. Some might even say impossible.
It requires diverse knowledge and insight from every perspective — a mindset that welcomes innovative and inclusive approaches to address and acknowledge every need. It also demands a constant state of evolution in a rapidly shifting world while staying connected to the day-to-day needs of the marketplace and our team members.
Difficult? Yes. Impossible? No — not when you are surrounded by allies — people, communities, partners, and organizations committed to cultivating an ever-better world through diversity and inclusion. When we work together, anything is possible.
Across Toyota North America, from manufacturing to R&D, cross-functional departments and individual team members to communities, executive leaders to business partnering groups, local governments to fellow corporations — we are building and strengthening partnerships with allies who embrace a common goal — to create a more inclusive society that celebrates and is enriched by our differences.
At Toyota, we stand behind our commitment to diversity and inclusion, and we remain steadfast in our belief for equality, respect and inclusivity for all people. As we experience historical transformation and take on new, rapidly changing business challenges, the fundamentals of Toyota’s DNA remain the same.
Who we are as an organization and the way in which we navigate the toughest times are reflected in our deep-rooted pillars — respect for people and continuous improvement. They are Toyota’s guiding light as we face new challenges and further evolve as a mobility company that fosters unity and respect for all.”
