Sustaining a Leadership Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

Lottie Holland is the Director – Diversity, Inclusion, Engagement and EEO Compliance, Stellantis North America

Stellantis is proud and humbled by our team’s efforts to earn and sustain our position as a corporate leader promoting the best values of diversity and inclusion.

In recognition of those efforts, I was pleased to learn that DiversityInc has named Stellantis as a Noteworthy Company in its annual evaluation of leading companies for diversity in the U.S. and to the specialty list of Top Companies for Supplier Diversity. 

This was the 13th time the company has earned one of DiversityInc’s top recognitions (Top 50 or Noteworthy) since the ratings were established in 2001.

In addition, the company ranked No. 3 on the 2022 Top Companies for Supplier Diversity specialty list, moving up from the No. 8 spot last year. 

What is even more rewarding is that this is just the latest in diversity leadership accomplishments that the company has received recently, which include:

·       LATINA Style magazine’s Top 50 Report of companies providing a supportive work environment for Latinas

·       Winds of Change magazine’s annual list of top companies providing careers, development and recruiting opportunities for Indigenous STEM professionals

·   CADIA (Center for Automotive Diversity, Inclusion, and Advancement) Diversity Impact Award in the category of Leadership Commitment to Diversity  

·   Top score on the annual Disability Equality Index, administered by Disability:IN and The American Association of People with Disabilities

This is a remarkable record of achievement, reflecting our team’s commitment to advancing the conversation on diversity and inclusion beyond aspirational statements to the pursuit of intentional actions and outcomes that have tangible economic impact in diverse communities.

Most importantly, even with our team’s many successes, we remain highly motivated to continue to take our commitment to diversity and inclusion to exciting new levels.

For instance, we launched the National Black Supplier Development Program last year in partnership with the National Business League, an automotive industry first.  At scale, the program is expected to support business opportunities and development for millions of Black-owned businesses in the U.S. and internationally.

In addition, earlier this year we launched two new programs focused on training and developing emerging Black and multicultural talent within our company for future leadership opportunities, modeled after our award-winning Women’s Leadership Experience talent development program.

Stellantis’ commitment to diversity is central to the company’s Dare Forward 2030 business strategy, contributing to the company being an extraordinary place to work and a magnet for people with the talent and drive to improve the lives of our customers today and in the digital and electrified future. 

Our team remains focused and engaged to continue to innovate in this space, and our commitment to diversity will continue to fuel our company’s success.
