Brose North America Partners With CADIA

CADIA is a non-profit focused on advancing talent in a diverse, equitable and inclusive way.

Brose North America has announced a new partnership with the Center for Automotive Diversity and Inclusion (CADIA) to advance its culture of diversity, equity and inclusion and to further its efforts to become an anti-racist organization. CADIA will provide tools, training and forums for discussions around equity while helping Brose celebrate diverse talent, drive systemic change and achieve diversity and inclusion goals set forth earlier this year. 

“Brose North America is comprised of a global, multi-cultural workforce and every day we strive to nurture the talents of all employees by creating an environment where deep respect for each individual is paramount,” said Wilm Uhlenbecker, president and CEO, Brose North America. “We are committed to being a driver of positive social change by nurturing a diverse, inclusive and equitable workplace and Brose’s partnership will help amplify our efforts.” 

Brose is taking actionable steps toward supporting the elimination of racial injustice and this year made a monetary gift to the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund. Brose also established an internal team dedicated to implementing diversity, equity and inclusion programs at each of its locations within the North American region. Interactive diversity training curriculum also is ongoing to educate all employees on the importance of racial equity, representation in the workplace and Brose’s zero tolerance policy for discrimination. Brose will continue to work toward creating a work environment that celebrates diversity, values inclusion and embraces equity moving forward.

“Brose North America’s culture is built on a strong foundation of family-oriented principles that elevate the well-being of our workforce. We continue to listen to our employees, learn from their experiences and grow our internal awareness to celebrate diversity, equity and inclusion from the C-Suite to the plant floors and beyond, to include our customers, suppliers and our collective business partners.” said Lisa Basila, vice president, Human Resources Brose North America. 

Brose is a 2020 Crain’s Detroit Business Excellence in Human Resources award recipient. Brose also was honored with the Michigan Top Workplace awards in 2018 and 2019 and Best & Brightest Companies to Work for Metro Detroit in 2019 and 2020.
