2021 Noteworthy Company | Honda

From The Company

Last summer, Honda formed a Social Justice Task Force. Our mission was to mobilize a diverse group of associates from across the company to act with urgency on the commitments made by executives in a June 4 statement, in the wake of the social justice movement.

To date, the task force has achieved the following results:

  • Implemented a leadership check-in conversation guide and a manager resource guide to help facilitate honest conversations with associates about race
  • Provided anti-racism and allyship training to our leaders and associates to promote social justice and inclusion across Honda’s North American operations
  • Developed a Social Justice Resource Guide and dedicated Intranet page for Honda associates
  • Standardized the observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day as a company holiday for all U.S. locations
  • Developed a social justice communication strategy for internal & external audiences

In addition, in 2020, Honda redirected funds earmarked for the Honda Campus All-Star Challenge (canceled due to COVID-19) to 49 HBCU communities hit hard by the pandemic.

Lastly, Honda held a highly successful fundraiser for the Thurgood Marshall College Fund through online fundraising platform Omaze.
