At General Motors, we appreciate what each person brings to the table—no matter the background, education, gender identity, sexual orientation, veteran status, religion, age, disability, race or ethnicity. Everyone has a voice and an opportunity to impact the course of our global innovation.

Hear from CEO Mary Barra about General Motors’ continued commitment to diversity.

Inclusion in action

Our recent endeavors have earned us widespread recognition, but we’re just getting started—and are currently executing an assertive five-year diversity implementation plan.

We take pride in a strong legacy of firsts. Our CEO, Mary Barra, is the first woman in the industry to claim the role, and our board of directors has achieved a 50/50 gender split—the first of any major industrial company.

Our Vision:

“A winning culture of inclusion that naturally enables GM employees, suppliers, dealers and communities to fully contribute in the pursuit of total customer enthusiasm.”

Alicia Boler-Davis, one of the 10 most powerful women in the automotive industry, is the Executive Vice President of General Motors Global Manufacturing.

Consistently recognized as one of the most diverse automotive employers worldwide, we’re eagerly devising new ways to empower and promote the individuality that exists throughout our unique workforce. Diversity and inclusion aren’t buzzwords—they’re calls to action that inspire us daily to strengthen our capacity for innovation across identity, background or ideology.

Employee Resource Groups

Our 13 employee resource groups are essential for nurturing a culture of inclusion, providing employees support and a forum in which to express concerns and share experiences. Each group has a defined plan to attract new talent to our company, and offers employees opportunities to support General Motors’ diversity initiatives within the community.
