EMPLOYEE RESOURCE GROUPS
Ford has demonstrated a commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion by endorsing and leveraging the power of our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs). ERGs are organizations of employees who share similar characteristics or life experiences and desire to use those similarities to create cross-functional workplace connections, provide professional development and advance business imperatives to cultivate an inclusive culture.

The land and natural resources on which they depend are inextricably linked to their identities, cultures and livelihoods, as well as their physical and spiritual well-being.
