The DiversityInc Top 50 list, issued yearly since 2001, recognizes the nation’s top companies for diversity and inclusion management. Toyota is the only automotive manufacturer ranked in the Top 10.

“The past year was unlike any other we’ve faced, yet Toyota’s fundamentals remain the same. Who we are and the way in which we navigate the toughest times are reflected in our core values of acting for others, showing respect for people and the quest for continuous improvement,” said Sandra Phillips Rogers, chief diversity officer and chief legal officer, Toyota Motor North America.

Rogers goes on to say, “These results reflect the strong commitment and collaboration of our employees across the company. We would not be where we are today without their efforts.”
