We believe that mobility goes well beyond cars. With our eyes to the future, we're setting our sights on an even greater mission of mobility for all. ‘Start Your Impossible’ is our call to action to make that vision a reality and inspire people to push onward―past their finish line, past their impossible. Because when we're free to move, anything is possible.
Here’s to the change-makers and the trail-blazers, the dreamers and the doers. We'll be sharing inspirational stories of our epic women leaders for Women’s History Month (WHM). First up – Susan Elkington, Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Kentucky’s (TMMK)1st female president. Watch her share her story at our WHM Kickoff from TMMK.
Start Your Impossible is more than a slogan, it’s a call to action to make a difference. We’re taking action in the communities where we live and work by collaborating with two North Texas Meals on Wheels organizations to help serve more seniors in need. By creatively combining knowledge and resources, we can affect real change.

Last week, we welcomed U. Renee Hall, Dallas Police Department's first female Chief of Police. She shared her powerful story and the influences that drive her to lead with courage. Huge thanks to our African American Collaborative for hosting in celebration of Black History Month. Watch to get inspired!
Toyota is dedicated to supporting service members and veterans and our commitment spans across the company. This commitment was brought to life when Mike Groff, Toyota Financial Services President, along with our Toyota Veterans Association and Allies in Service hosted mock interview sessions for service members.
Lieutenant Colonel Dale Bailey, a local service member in North Texas, heard about the event and jumped at the chance to attend. “That Toyota was partnering with Allies in Service made it a no-brainer. When I showed up and found out each participant would be doing two mock interviews and then getting feedback, that sounded like a chance to get great experience,” said Lieutenant Colonel Bailey.
Let the Games begin! We’re excited for Toyota’s first-ever global corporate initiative, “Start Your Impossible,” to fully take shape when the Winter Olympic Games begin in PyeongChang, South Korea next week. As the proud partner of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, we’re proud to see Toyota’s vision of mobility for all come to life, and to support Team Toyota USA athletes as they challenge what’s possible!
What makes Toyota a ‘Glassdoor 2018 Best Place to Work’? Respect for people and continuous improvement, the two pillars of The Toyota Way.
The Toyota Way is “how we approach everything we do and that includes making our culture one where team members feel valued and are encouraged to challenge what’s possible. As a leader, providing that type of support — where people aren’t afraid to fail — I think that breeds confidence. It fosters innovation and when team members believe they can do epic things, they usually do.” - Terri Von Lehmden, GM of Talent Acquisition at Toyota.
If there's anyone who knows what it's like to go for what they want it's Tina. After facing challenges in her life, she decided to start over and go back to school as a non-traditional student. Tina started her journey at Toyota as an intern as part our Rainbow Push partnership, and her dedication and drive earned her a full-time offer as a college programs recruiter. Tina fully embodies our commitment to challenge what’s possible every day. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQ7QU
