General Motors: Gender equality from top-down

Program Objectives

General Motors is one of the largest automobile manufacturers in the country. The company strives for generating inclusive thinking throughout their organization. 

To achieve the goal, GM has implemented gender equality in all bands of its management — top, middle, and bottom.  

General Motors was the first — and remains the only — automaker to be led by a female CEO. It is also the only company with a pay gap of less than 3% between men and women. 

General Motors has been doing a great job in making DEI a part of its work culture. GM can further extend its diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives by introducing inclusive learning and training initiatives for all.  

Recent research has established that manager mindset is the key factor contributing to the glacial pace of women’s advancement. 

A custom DEI training module can be a good step towards elevating your gender equality efforts. The purpose of that training is not to just help women rise in positions of power and increase their income. 

It is also about teaching the value of women as employees and how they should not be mistreated because of their gender.

What Made it Effective?

Companies that promote gender diversity and equal representation can also benefit like GM as:

Chegg: Employee resource groups

Program Objectives

Chegg is an education technology platform that provides student services like textbooks solution, homework assistance, and online training. 

Chegg’s DEI policies include establishing Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) designed to support, promote, and celebrate groups of underrepresented employees.

ERGs has helped Chegg employees to be their best authentic selves and support their ‘Student First’ mission for their 4 million subscriber customers.

However, pandemic and work-from-home has slowed the inclusion progress. Making ERGs virtual can ensure that the company is giving voice to diverse experiences—no matter where people are located.

Chegg has done a great job ensuring executive sponsorship to help ERGs meet their objectives, and create a line of communication with company leaders. Next step Chegg can do is go virtual with its ERG initiatives. 

Evolving the different channels for your employees to connect reinforces the message that the organization is committed to empowering them while also providing an additional avenue for them to network.

What Made it Effective?

Employee resource groups don’t just benefit its members but your entire organizations:
