Diversity + Collaboration = Great Innovation
At Hitachi Energy, we live by this powerful equation.
Together with customers and partners, we are accelerating the transition to a sustainable energy future. We will only recognize this future when everyone has a seat at the table in an inclusive, collaborative culture.
That’s why we created Diversity 360.
What is Diversity 360 and how will we achieve this vision?
Diversity 360 is our vision which ensures diversity and inclusion are at the core of our long-term business success. We believe in the power of diversity of thought and that it’s everyone’s job to build a workplace that fosters it. That’s why we have four cross-functional workstreams that aim to integrate diversity and inclusion into the very fabric of our culture.
Our Leadership Pillars
With this structure, leaders are held accountable for integrating diversity and inclusion into how we hire, grow and develop our talent. Leaders are the engine behind diversity of thought and play an important role in shaping our environment.
Over the course of nine months, we brought together 500+ colleagues representing 28 nationalities, in 10 countries, and all levels to help us understand how our people want to be led.
The result is our unique leadership framework which we call Our Leadership Pillars.
Through development programs, global employee networks, partnerships and benefits that serve women and allies, we are committed to increasing the number of women in our workplace and gender equality. In 2019, 19% of our global workforce identified as women.
We acknowledge that this is not enough and have set gender diversity targets for 2025:
Female Talent Development Program
This program is designed to accelerate female talent to be ready for senior leadership positions. Participants are exposed to mentoring, masterclass learning, and senior leadership.
Global Women’s Network
Our employee led network fosters gender diversity by creating a platform for women and allies to impact our practices and gain additional avenues for self-development.
Early Career Focus
Our STEM, early career rotational program aims to have at least 50% women among participants. We partner with universities known for their commitment to gender diversity in their student body.
Living Diversity and Inclusion
Through awareness building across all levels of the organization, external partnerships and a commitment to life-long learning, we create an environment where everyone can thrive.
Interrupting Unconscious Bias
We offer Unconscious Bias training to all employees. Our top 800 leaders, including our CEO, have completed this training.
We provide opportunities for our talent to create the cultural basis for collaboration and inclusiveness through opportunities such as international work assignments and cultural sensitivity tools and resources.
We’re proud to be a supporter of Catalyst – a global, non-profit supported by the world’s leading companies to help build workplaces that work for women.
Attract and Grow People
Committed to attracting and growing people through life-long learning, we believe that offering equitable opportunities to learn and grow is key to an inclusive culture.
World Class Learning Journeys
We seek diversity of thought and believe that everyone has potential when given the right tools to succeed. That’s why we offer world class learning journeys and focused development programs through our internal learning team.
Lifelong learning process
We offer our people the ability to learn anywhere, anytime through our on-demand learning platform, giving equal access to all talent to grow and advance their career regardless of their schedule.
Enabling diversity starts well before the workplace. We’re a proud partner of BringKids2Schools whose mission is to finance and build schools in the world’s poorest countries, giving better access to a quality education for all children.
