Susan G Komen "Race for the Cure" 2018

Contribution to Society

Our team members are committed to working together inside and outside of the Gigafactory by building relationships with each other, and with our local northern Nevada community.

For the last century, Panasonic divisions across the globe have taken great pride in our founder's 7 Basic Business Principles, with "Contribution to Society" being the first on that list.

We strive to have a presence in our community not just as a business, but as a community partner that is actively involved and engaged with our northern Nevada community today, and for years to come. 

Community Partnerships and Engagement

The organization has been a tremendous resource to our community as well as those looking to relocate to our area with obtaining information about our Gigafactory operation, and employment opportunities.
