Since the establishment of our first operations in America in 1959, Honda has continuously aimed to make a positive impact in the communities where we live and work. Honda believes that human beings are born as free and unique individuals with the capacity to think, reason and create — and the ability to dream. Our wish is to nurture and promote these characteristics in Honda by respecting individual differences, trusting each other as equal partners, exercising abilities to the fullest and sharing joy.
Description: Honda celebrates the diversity of our communities and will provide funding for programs and/or events that support the cultures, heritage, and traditions of marginalized communities.
