Toyota Motor North America works hard to create an equitable and diverse workplace that represents the rich tapestry that is our country. Its efforts earned the automaker a spot in the top 10 of DiversityInc’s 2020 Top 50 Companies for Diversity®.
The commitment to diversity has only gotten stronger at Toyota over the years. Since 2013, the company has moved 38 spots up the list, now finding itself No. 10 among all companies in America. Toyota moved up eight spots from the 2019 list alone, suggesting that it could very well be vying for a top spot within the next few years.
“When it comes to diversity and inclusion, each year we try to set new challenges and new goals with a plan for attaining them,” said Sandra Phillips Rogers, chief diversity officer and chief legal officer, TMNA. “This recognition gives us encouragement that we’re on the right path because we know it’s a journey, not a destination.”
Some of the ways that Toyota promotes diversity from within include making Continuous Improvement and Respect for People key components of its values and vision. TMNA also has a Diversity Advisory Board, which works with the Executive Diversity and Inclusion Council to ensure that steps are constantly being taken to do better. Toyota says 33 percent of its senior executives serve on boards of multicultural organizations. That same commitment extends to employees — more than 200 Toyota employees have completed the D&I Champions program since 2018.
