LIXIL Group CEO, Kinya Seto, said, "At LIXIL, we believe that the dynamic energy of diversity is an engine for growth and innovation. We are committed to building an inclusive culture where all employees can be themselves, be heard, reach their full potential for improved productivity, and accelerate communications across the organization.
