"All of our employees at Chrysler Group are valued and given the opportunity to contribute to the success of our Company," according to Georgette Dulworth, director for Talent Acquisition & Diversity for Chrysler Group LLC. "As an Employer of Choice, Chrysler Group prides itself in creating an inclusive business environment in which all people and ideas are welcome, appreciated and respected."
But more importantly, the automaker also continues to back up that kind of commitment with public action, serving this weekend as a Gold Sponsor of Motor City Pride, Michigan’s largest gathering of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) individuals.
“It is fitting that Chrysler Group has a prominent place at this event, celebrating, advocating and building upon all it has done over the years to include and empower its LGBT employees and the community at large,” said Gregory Hawkins, a Chrysler Group engineer and president of the automaker’s LGBT employee resource group. “Speaking on behalf of LGBT employees at Chrysler Group, we are very proud of what our company has achieved in creating a work culture that is diverse, respectful and inclusive.”
Of course, gearheads being gearheads, and customers being customers, some of Hawkins’ colleague also were on hand to show off Chrysler Group products like the 2013 FIAT 500 Abarth Cabrio—recently named the No. 1 drop-top in its class at the annual Topless in Miami convertible awards—as well as the all-new 2014 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk and 2013 Chrysler 300C Motown Edition.
