DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION CONT. Creating an Inclusive Culture When the goal to become the world’s most inclusive company was announced, our DEI efforts intensified, and our sense of urgency accelerated. Today, the cultural transformation taking place within our company is as significant as the technology transformation driving our business growth. Indeed, the two are interrelated; at the intersection of these transformations is the potential for innovation, and significant and consistent innovation is required for GM to reach its zero, zero, zero vision. Key builders of this culture are the employees in our ERGs—global voluntary, employee- led groups that serve as a resource for their constituent members and allies. ERGs help GM improve DEI maturity throughout our global business. We have 11 ERGs, with many chapters across the United States and the world. Importantly, ERGs are fully open to anyone interested in participating. Nearly all ERGs have executive-led advisory councils to help them advance and address issues and opportunities. We’re proud that all GM ERGs experienced growth in members and allies during 2021. We are complementing the work of ERGs through the establishment of DEI cultural ambassadors as well as inclusion committees. This distributed model of DEI ensures that we are addressing DEI from both local and centralized perspectives. These ambassadors and committees are critical to our ability to address local opportunities as well as to scale certain DEI initiatives across the company. Furthermore, this approach enables everyone to lead DEI efforts—not just as people leaders, but at the individual level.
