Toshiba Group sets “Respect for Human Rights” as a core concept within the Standards of Conduct for executives and employees. It clarifies that it will not engage in behavior violating human rights, such as discriminatory language or action related to race, religion, gender, nationality, disability, age or sexual orientation, as well as violence, sexual harassment, and power harassment (bullying and harassment in the workplace). Toshiba Group takes responsibility for protecting LGBT+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and other sexualities) and other minority groups according to the following policy.
We do not discriminate against minorities.
Gender identity and sexual orientation are unrelated to the ability of a person that the Group values, and there should be no discrimination or harassment simply for being a minority.
We respect individual autonomy.
Information related to gender identity and sexual orientation, its disclosure or non-disclosure, and their expression are controlled by the preferences of the person, and must not be unjustly interfered with.
We remove barriers to work and operations.
Barriers to work and operations for minorities such as LGBT+ must be removed to a reasonable extent through consensus building by appropriate process.
To initiate a new future for Toshiba Group, it is essential to draw out the individuality and diverse abilities of people with a sincere passion for transformation who envision the Company’s future and cooperate with one another to create new things. We formulated the aforementioned basic policy for this reason and it will be implemented for all Toshiba Group employees.
