Today’s students have a bright future ahead of them. To help them fulfill their potential, Panasonic’s Office of Social Impact & Inclusion is investing in programs that prepare them for success in the global 21st century. Our mission is to address the widespread gap between future tech jobs and education in science, tech, engineering, arts and math (STEAM), especially in underserved communities.
We are focused on closing the gap to alleviate inequities in educational access by providing Title I schools with access to STEAM education, strengthening and diversifying the tech talent pipeline and developing a diverse workforce prepared for the global 21st-century economy.
Through our combined efforts and shared goals, each of our employees works to make the world a better place. That’s why we’re creating a workplace that enables dynamic professionals to make major contributions.
A skilled workforce is not someone else’s responsibility, it’s ours. From intern conversion programs to on-campus recruiting to workforce education programs, we support those who want a great career improving the world through technology.
Since its founding, Panasonic has been committed to making positive contributions to our world and society. In the last few decades, this has included setting itself amongst the global leaders in developing sustainable technology. As the impacts of climate change have become more severe and detrimental around the world, it has become clear these investments are not enough.
That's why we’re changing the way we operate – from creating more sustainable business practices, products and solutions to helping our customers and business partners integrate sustainable technologies in their projects. We’re committed to leading the systemic changes necessary to address the urgency of the climate crisis – deepening our commitment to sustainability.
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
At Panasonic, we believe that 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 can share their voice and talents, in a safe space, where they have the opportunity and resources to fully realize their potential.
To achieve this, the company has 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.
