Volunteer Spotlight

The Power of One, The Power of Many

When employees at Mitsubishi Electric Automotive America gathered for their 21st Annual Volunteer Leadership Workshop, Easterseals Redwood welcomed 50 team members from across the country and Japan.

Mitsubishi has been a long-time philanthropic partner of Easterseals Redwood, donating time and lumber from shipping crates to Easterseals Redwood’s woodworking and construction skills training programs. The company also actively works to increase employment opportunities for transitioning youth, adults, and veterans with disabilities by offering leadership development, employment preparation, and ability awareness programs.

“I experienced an epiphany during the workshop around ‘what’s normal or who is normal.’ There is no normal or abnormal. We are all beautiful beings,” said Hiromi Grotts of Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc. in Cypress, CA. “So, when we were discussing what we learned in our workshop that we want to incorporate into our workplace, I mentioned to my group that I like the idea of a mentoring day. My idea is not that we mentor people with disabilities, but they mentor us from their point of view. I’m sure we can learn a lot from them.”
