Just Released: “Driving Diversity” Industry Study

February 13, 2024

The Center for Automotive Diversity, Inclusion, and Advancement (CADIA) just released their DEI Industry Study Driving Diversity: Unlocking the Power of Diverse Workforces for the Future of the Transportation Industry. This study, funded by MichAuto and the State of Michigan in partnership with KPMG, establishes key baseline data, provides benchmarks for diversity, equity, and inclusion, and provides recommendations on how to impact the DEI measures found within the study.

This DEI study directly aligns with CADIA’s mission and supports one of the four critical workstreams of MichAuto’s High-Tech Talent Strategy to strengthen Michigan’s global competitiveness in the automotive, mobility, and technology industries.

The broader initiative is being funded by a grant through the State of Michigan’s Mobility Futures Initiative with the goal of growing high-tech talent in Michigan and bringing to life the Michigan Office of Future Mobility and Electrification’s MI Future Mobility Plan.
