Diversity: A Way of Life
To us, diversity simply means honoring equally all the backgrounds and points of view that make up the rich fabric of the American culture. We are a company of visionary and forward-thinking people; respect for our fellow citizens and fellow employees comes naturally.
It is in this spirit that we work to create a culture of achievement, excitement, trust and teamwork.
And we believe that diversity is not only good corporate citizenship, it's good business, producing better relationships with our customers, dealers, employees and suppliers.
Supplier Diversity Policy
At Volkswagen Group of America, we wholeheartedly believe in the value of partnering with qualified, experienced and value-driven suppliers of all backgrounds. We recognize a diverse supplier pool allows us to take advantage of innovative perspectives, unique talents and cutting edge ideas.
Ultimately, we are committed to finding the most professional and diverse businesses available. Our goal is to forge long-term relationships with these suppliers to benefit our brands, our customers and the communities in which we live.
If your business is interested in becoming one of our supplier affiliates, and if your business has been certified by the National Minority Supplier Development Council, and the Women's Business Enterprise Council (or one of their regional affiliates) we invite you to register with us.
Supplier Diversity Initiative
The Volkswagen Group has established specific goals and initiatives to reach out to both individuals and groups in an ongoing commitment to diversity leadership in all phases of our business, from employees, to suppliers, to community involvement. We will be hosting events to educate on these initiatives in Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, Arkansas, Missouri and Louisiana throughout the upcoming months. Visit this site for the latest information.
We believe our commitment to diversity paves the road to a successful future.
