Diversity, Equity & Inclusion at Panasonic North America

Our Mission

We believe that in order to drive our business to continued heights for all people, our business practices and our contribution to society must be rooted in diversity, equity and inclusion. We foster an environment in which everyone is able to share their voice and talents, in a safe space, where they have the opportunity and resources to fully realize their potential. We are therefore committed to developing and realizing programs, tools and processes that ensure a diverse, equitable and inclusive environment for our employees, in turn benefiting our partners, customers and communities we serve.

Panasonic North America CEO, Megan Myungwon Lee

"As a Korean-born American woman working for a Japanese company in the United States, I have a unique perspective on what our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion initiatives mean for both me as an individual and my role in this organization. As an individual employee, Panasonic’s deepening investment in DE&I is validation that my experiences and unique worldview can add value."
