Sharing Mazda's Experiences and Hopes with the Next Generation
Utilizing Specialized Knowledge, Skills, and Many Years of Experience
Mazda dispatches employees for lectures and other events since 1994, upon request from educational institutions and other organizations, in order to utilize its diverse human resources to contribute to education in local communities.
Mazda continued these activities in FY2018. Employees and retirees with specific knowledge, skills (occupational lectures, environmental classes), and specialties (safety, English, music, magic tricks, comedy, sports) took part in events and festivals, to the joy of all involved.
Through this activity, in addition to matching local needs, employees also gained valuable experiences. The activity was praised as a win-win, and in 2018 it was awarded the 12th Kids Design Award*.
