By Rachel Wetzel posted 16 days ago

CADIA is a mission driven organization focused on diversity and inclusion in the automotive industry. Their mission is to double the number of diverse leaders in the automotive industry by 2030. Founder and CEO, Cheryl Thompson, will be here in Connexion+ to lead a Chat on Diversity in the Automotive Industry. While her main focus is on the automotive industry, input from all areas of the mobility industry is welcome. 

"CADIA is the Center for Automotive Diversity, Inclusion and Advancement. It also happens to be the name of an underground goldmine in Australia. We love this connection. Why?

We think there is a goldmine in unleashing Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI)! Successful companies of the future will mine the diverse strengths, approaches and solutions of their entire workforce. Creating an engaging, diverse pool of talent will be essential to the Automotive Industry’s success!"

Submit you questions ahead of time!

Starter questions:

  1. How can we widen the circle when talking about DEI to truly include everyone?

  2. How does the topic of Psychological Safety apply to an Inclusive Workplace?

  3. DEI Metrics – do we need them and why or why not?

  4. How can we bring the majority along on our DEI journey?

  5. Should DEI efforts be top down or bottom up?
