In 2016, Yokohama established the Women’s Participation and Advancement Task Force, which it renamed as the Diversity Promotion Task Force in 2019 to coincide with an expanded scope of activities. The task force works to create a corporate culture in which a diverse range of employees can succeed. Key activities include providing support for child and family caregivers, conducting seminars to facilitate the acceptance and understanding of people with disabilities and people in the LGBTQ+ communities, and promoting the development of a workplace environment that is comfortable for a diverse range of people.
