Mazda Sustainability – Building a More Inclusive Workplace

Building a more inclusive workplace

To build an inclusive workplace where everyone feels welcome and encouraged to thrive, we established nine Employee Business Resource Groups (EBRGs):

  • African American Business Network
  • Asian American Pacific Islander
  • Christian Faith
  • Interfaith Network
  • PRIDE at Mazda
  • Todos Unidos!
  • VET+
  • Women in Leadership
  • Women of Color+

In April 2022, we held our first EBRG fair. In 18 sessions over two days, over 110 employees learned about and joined the EBRGs. Interested in joining the Mazda team?
