Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Ford invites us to bring our whole selves – all of our passion, inspiration, integrity and uniqueness – into the office each day.

OUR DEI NORTH STAR

For more than a century, Ford has been a pioneer in providing opportunity to people regardless of race, gender, ability, sexual orientation and background. We view this less with pride than the sober realization that we must go further to create a company where our differences are truly valued and every team member can bring their whole selves to work. Creating a culture of belonging isn’t just the right thing to do, it’s also the smart thing. Diversity breeds innovation and the companies that attract the most talented and diverse workforce will succeed in our rapidly changing world. 

 

We are family. 

We celebrate our differences. 

We all belong.

OUR STRATEGIC PRIORITIES

It is important that we embed our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion strategies into every part of our company to leverage our innovative workforce, compete in the marketplace and serve the community. Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is a collaborative effort across our entire enterprise. Here are just a few examples:

LEADING THE WAY

People Leaders at all levels are instrumental in creating a culture of belonging where all employees can thrive by bringing their authentic selves to work. Inclusive leaders embrace courageous dialogue, seek to understand, and serve as allies, mentors and sponsors to create a positive employee experience for all team members.

DIVERSE WORKFORCE

Embracing a diverse workforce is a business imperative and key enabler to delivering The Plan. We must leverage different perspectives, backgrounds and thinking styles in order to craft the best products, services and experiences for our customers and communities. Diversity breeds innovation; the companies that attract and retain the most talented and diverse workforce will win.

RESPECTFUL & INCLUSIVE CULTURE

Inclusion is more than just bringing diverse groups of people together, but rather finding ways to amplify the voices of everyone in the room. Every member of our Ford family deserves to be respected, valued and heard. That means we don’t just talk about what’s important, we take clear actions to make a difference.
