Diversity & Inclusion:
Many Perspectives. Singular Vision.
"At GM, we aspire to be the most inclusive company in the world. And our hope is that every company will do the same. And while there may not be a precise roadmap for how that will happen, that is no excuse not to try. Inclusion will be a north star for us. And every day, we will take steps in service of our aspiration." Mary Barra, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
Our focus continues to be on fostering an inclusive culture that celebrates the unique differences in each of us
Inclusion in action
Fighting for Justice - General Motors has always strived for inclusion both in how we support our employees and how we operate globally with customers. In June 2020, we took this mission even further when Chairperson and CEO, Mary Barra took a stand to condemn intolerance and fight injustice. This included the establishment of the GM Inclusion Advisory Board (IAB) and donating $10M to support organizations which promote inclusion and racial justice. Read more about these actions here.
While we are proud that our recent endeavors have earned us recognition, our focus continues to be on fostering an inclusive culture that celebrates the unique differences in each of us and allows each employee the opportunity to use their voice and impact the course of our global innovation.

"Intolerance, discrimination, inequality, racism and injustice have no home here. And we want to do our part to make sure it has no home in our society or community either.”Gerald Johnson, GM Executive President of Global Manufacturing
