Jones Day Dallas Hosts Diversity Q&A with Toyota In-House Counsel
Jones Day Dallas Hosted a Diversity Question and Answer session with Ellen Farrell, from the legal department within Toyota. The event included a fruitful discussion about the state of diversity in the legal profession, Toyota’s internal diversity initiatives, why Toyota cares about the diversity of its outside legal service providers, and implicit bias training that Toyota recently required some of its outside law firms do.
Toyota believes that furthering the success of its customers, dealers, team members, suppliers and communities is key to its own success. The company challenges what is possible and recognizes Diversity & Inclusion as an essential component of every team member experience, making the workplace, marketplace, society and the world a better place by living what they value — equality, respect and inclusive treatment of all people and increased awareness of conscious and unconscious discrimination.
