2022 will see an increase in the number of automotive brands that support diversity and inclusion.
More automobile firms have shown their support for diversity and inclusion by starting personal campaigns or lending their support to initiatives by the year 2022.
There is still a lot of work to be done, not just in terms of gender, but also in other areas of diversity, as the success of the industry depends on its ability to recruit smart and intellectual people.
For example, in order to champion its involvement in promoting diversity, brands such as Audi have, as of the year 2017, implemented holistic Diversity Management. This management strategy includes training courses on unconscious bias, toolboxes for inclusive leadership, and equal-opportunity processes. Audi also collaborates with external initiatives, such as the Women Automotive Network, in order to promote diversity. This effort is paying off for the organization as seen by the fact that it has already taught around 10,000 employees, managers, and supervisors on diversity-related themes to this point.

The Women Automotive Network is the venue for conversations around automotive diversity and technology that is expanding at the highest rate. Events, programming, mentoring programs, and a fast-expanding community of more than 14,000 members across digital make this possible.
