In June 2020, General Motors (GM) announced their ambition to become the most inclusive company in the world. Simultaneously, GM launched the Inclusion Advisory Board (IAB) and also established a Justice and Inclusion Fund with an initial commitment of $10 million to organizations that promote inclusion and racial justice.
To date, GM has committed $22 million to organizations doing important racial justice work and have been able to serve more than 2.6 million individuals from historically underserved communities.
GM is committed to creating inclusive solutions to social issues in the communities in which we live and work.

General Motors was also proud to celebrate 195 years of the Black Press of America! GM was a sponsor the 2022 NNPA Annual Convention. NNPA has consistently been the voice of the Black community and an incubator for news that continues to make history and impact our society at large. GM’s Executive Director of Workforce Strategy, Tammy Golden and Director of Diversity Marketing, Tarshena Armstrong, joined a panel discussion, where they shared steps GM is taking to become the most inclusive company in the world. At GM we are taking intentional and deliberate action to increase our diverse owned media spend. We’re hiring more diverse talent than ever before, through programs like our Discover The Unexpected Internship program, targeting HBCU students and we’re diversifying the way we’re telling our stories. We couldn’t do any of this without the support of our Black press.
