Who We Are


Our Organization: A mission driven organization focused on diversity and inclusion in the automotive industry.

Our Mission: Double the number of diverse leaders in the automotive industry by 2030.

Our Staff: Industry veterans with diverse experience including manufacturing engineering, operations, HR, organizational development, sales, training and coaching; Professional certifications from the National Diversity Council.

CADIA is the Center for Automotive Diversity, Inclusion and Advancement. It also happens to be the name of an underground goldmine in Australia. We love this connection. Why?

We think there is a goldmine in unleashing Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI)! Successful companies of the future will mine the diverse strengths, approaches and solutions of their entire workforce. Creating an engaging, diverse pool of talent will be essential to the Automotive Industry’s success!
