Respect for diversity and inclusion (D&I) is an important element of the Bridgestone Group’s Global Human Rights Policy. It is especially important "in a global enterprise consisting of diverse talent with varied backgrounds, cultures and experiences," according to the Global CEO Masaaki Tsuya. This commitment comes to life in multiple ways across the Bridgestone Group.
We have set up tailored diversity-related programs that uphold the rules, traditions and regulations of individual countries and regions in which we operate.
In Japan, we seek to offer attractive, satisfying employment opportunities for people with disabilities, and have set up our Bridgestone Empowerment Co., Ltd. subsidiary to help promote that goal.
We have implemented diversity-related actions (lunch get-togethers for parents, seminars about childcare, nursing care, LGBTQ*1, etc.) targeting Bridgestone Corporation and 20 group companies in Japan.
