Straight Talk Texas – A Conversation With Chris Nielsen of Toyota Motor North America
Date: May 14, 2020

Join us for a conversation with Chris Nielsen, Executive Vice President for one of Texas’ top employers, Toyota Motor North America. Today, he talks with Texas 2036 President and CEO and former Secretary of Education, Margaret Spellings, about why Toyota selected Texas to locate its U.S. headquarters, how it is innovating to provide PPE and ensure employees are safe when they return to work, and what the future looks like for the company and our state.

What is Straight Talk Texas?

Today, it’s more important than ever for people across Texas to have access to discussions they can trust about challenges facing our state now and in the future. To be the best place to live and work, we need to listen, learn and be aware of what is on the minds of Texas leaders, policy experts, educators and health professionals.

If history is any guide, Texas can come back strong from the current challenges we face. It’s up to all of us to work together to make sure that happens. So, take 20 minutes and 36 seconds to listen in as state leaders talk about health care, education, workforce development and government performance. We hope these videos will provide a front-row seat to conversations that will illuminate and help shape the historic decisions currently facing our state.
