Plano-Based Toyota Ranks Among Fair360's Top 50 Companies

Toyota upheld the ranking for the third consecutive year

Fair360, previously known as DiversityInc, recognized Toyota North America as one of its top 50 companies for 2024, securing the fourth position out of the 160 companies surveyed. 

Toyota upheld its ranking for the third consecutive year, solidifying its status as the sole automotive manufacturer to claim a spot in the Top 10.

“Everyone at Toyota plays a role in creating an inclusive culture where people belong and can contribute to their fullest potential,” said Tellis Bethel, chief diversity officer and group vice president of social innovation, Toyota Motor North America. “Representation from a variety of cultural backgrounds unlocks innovation, as well as opportunity for an equitable future. Together, we can create limitless possibilities for all.”

Plano-based Toyota also garnered noteworthy accolades in several key areas. These recognitions include ranking as the second top company for Black executives and LGBTQ employees, as well as securing the third position for philanthropy and the fourth for environmental, social and governance practices. Additionally, Toyota earned the fifth spot for both Asian American executives and Native American and Pacific Islander representation. 

With the dedicated efforts of Toyota team members, the organization ascended to the third position for Philanthropy, driven by unprecedented levels of community engagement and generous contributions in both monetary and in-kind donations. In 2023 alone, team members collectively volunteered nearly 50,000 hours with 995 organizations across the United States. This represents a remarkable surge of almost 26% in volunteer hours compared to the previous year, along with a nearly 13% increase in the number of organizations supported. 

Since 2001, the Fair360 Top 50 survey has served as the authoritative assessment for major U.S. employers who exemplify fairness in their talent strategies, workplace policies, supplier diversity initiatives and philanthropic endeavors.

Fair360 rankings rely on empirical data, drawn from six crucial categories provided by participating companies: leadership accountability, human capital diversity metrics, talent programs, workforce practices, supplier diversity and philanthropy.
