GM, Executive Vice President of Global Manufacturing
2018 Black Engineer of the Year
Today’s General Motors (GM) is built on the strength of its diverse workforce, and the company recognizes the importance of giving back. Diversity is an integral part of the company’s culture and success.
“General Motors has a strong track record of supporting STEM-related education for young girls and women, and particularly African-American women,” says GM Executive Vice President of Global Manufacturing and Link Alicia Boler Davis. “I’m proud and pleased that GM is providing a grant for $35,000 to The Links.”
The GM grant will be used to provide a matching $300 grant to any Links chapter that donates a minimum of $300 to start a new LINKS-NSBE Jr. chapter or support an existing LINKS-NSBE Jr. chapter.
Under the leadership of GM Chairman and CEO Mary Barra, GM has made supporting education one of its top philanthropic priorities, with a special focus on creating STEM-education opportunities for young women.
“This grant is GM’s way of saying ‘Thank You’ to The Links organization and of supporting all the tremendous work that is going on, work that truly makes the world a better place,” Boler Davis says.
From electric cars to heavy-duty full-size trucks, General Motors provides a complete range
of vehicles that meets the needs and expectations of drivers on a truly global scale. There are
eight distinctive automotive brands under the GM corporate umbrella: Chevrolet,
Buick, GMC, Cadillac, Holden, Baojun, Wuling, and Jiefang. For more information, please visit gm.com.
