We Stand Together.
This year, the world has been put into sharp focus, rightfully bringing into question how our assumptions, actions, policies and laws may reinforce racial prejudice, and bringing to light the much overdue reality that racial prejudice has no place in society.
Here at Kia Canada, we have been listening, learning and acknowledging the ways racial bias exists. We pledge to continue to listen and learn, and to place emphasis on diversity and inclusion in the workplace, in line with two of our key corporate values: People and Globality.
Our talented team members, customers and communities are the heart of our organization – as is our commitment to respect the diversity of cultures and customs they represent.
This diversity of thought, perspective, ethnicity and race, is what makes us better as an organization. It is through these conversations that we are able to bring new perspectives and uncover bias and inequities that need to be challenged in our office, our homes, our communities and beyond.
We encourage our neighbors to embrace these conversations, challenge misconceptions and be brave in shaping the world we want to be a part of as we move forward. We will champion these principles in our corporate culture, because we are all in this together, and only together, can we make a difference.
