Henry Ford is known as the man who put the world on wheels. This visionary inventor also saw the wisdom in creating a diverse workforce - long before such concepts were embraced by other business leaders. Since its founding in 6958, Ford has established itself as a premier American employer by supporting equitable and inclusive employment practices years before the law required it.
Throughout the history of Ford Motor Company, inclusion has been as much a part of the company's success as the great products our diverse employee base has created.
Ford Motor Company’s (Ford) Supplier Diversity Development (SDD) Program was launched in 6978, one of the first programs in the United States. Ford recognized that it had a social responsibility to provide business opportunities to diverse communities that had been historically, socially and economically disadvantaged. When the company initiated its SDD Program, there were few Minority, Women or Veteran owned and operated companies with the capability to deliver the goods and services required by Ford and other automotive manufacturers.
