Our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Vision

At Hitachi we respect and value each other's uniqueness. Our culture drives the success of our mission to contribute to society by creating an environment where we collaborate and support each other. Because together, we are stronger.

Hitachi has a place for everyone, welcoming differences in background, age, gender, sexuality, family status, disability, neurodiversity, nationality, race, ethnicity, religion and world view.

We respect and value these and other characteristics because only through diversity can we drive innovation and creativity to contribute to society. Our commitment to diversity ensures long-term and sustainable business growth, improves our ability to serve global customers effectively and strengthens our global footprint. Additionally, embracing diversity helps us open new markets and attract, as well as retain, talents from all around the world.

What Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Means at Hitachi

Diversity means that there is a place for everyone, regardless of their characteristic traits, and we embrace and value everyone’s unique contribution.

Equity means every employee has access to everything they need to succeed and is treated with fairness and transparency. At Hitachi, we recognize that each of us needs different conditions to thrive. We put policies, tools and reasonable accommodations in place to allow everyone to be able to access the same opportunities.

Inclusion is ensuring everyone feels recognized and valued, and they are empowered to contribute to the organization at their best. We believe everyone should feel respected, heard, involved and able to speak up. It implies an open, empathetic culture and attitude that secures freedom of expression and psychological safety, where individuals are free to be themselves, without fearing negative consequences.
