At TOYOTA, their long-standing commitment to diversity and inclusion is driven by their founding principles of Respect for People and Continuous Improve-ment. Their process of diversity and inclusion is ingrained throughout TOYOTA’s business functions and is illustrated every day by their team members, supplier partners, and community advocates.
Whether working directly with diverse companies as a Tier I supplier or indirectly as a Tier II, TOYOTA proudly supports building collaborative partnerships in all aspects of their company. At TOYOTA, their suppliers are more than just suppliers, they’re their partners and the diversity of their entire supply base is critical to TOYOTA’s success and sustainability. TOYOTA believes in building strong rela-tionships with their Tier I and Tier II partners alike. They do this through mentor-ship as well as through their two annual networking events, Power of Exchange and Opportunity Exchange. Regardless of the Tier I or Tier II status, they consider all of their suppliers very much a part of the One TOYOTA family.
As a CAMSC Corporate Member, TOYOTA uses the insights gained from the various networking opportunities to assist with their cultivation of a corporate culture reflective of the communities in which the company has a presence.
