Founded in 1994, FAAN is the first and oldest of Ford's employee resource groups. FAAN champions workplace diversity at Ford by making a positive impact on the African-American community, and by actively promoting and supporting the Ford brand throughout the community. For its constituents, FAAN focuses on developing people through mentorship, networking, and other employee engagement activities.
Our participants support summer internship programs, recruiting at minority-focused career events, and collaborate with the Company to produce a spectacular annual Black History Month celebration. In the Detroit area, FAAN provides SAT coaching to local high schools, supports the Detroit pre-college engineering program, partners with the Detroit NAACP for an annual youth career summit with focus on STEM field, and provides major support for the United Negro College Fund annual fundraiser. In addition, FAAN hosts numerous other community outreach initiatives throughout the year. In short, this ERG and its participants are FAAN-tastic!!
