In the past weeks we have seen the wide open pain and anguish of racial injustice, expressions of anger, sadness and frustration, and frightening violent situations in the United States.
Jaguar Land Rover today stands in solidarity with all colleagues, family and friends. We are committed to creating an environment where everyone can flourish; where you feel listened to, understood, supported and valued equally. We are proud to champion racial equality in the workplace as the first UK car manufacturer to sign the Business in the Community 'Race at Work Charter'. We take a zero tolerance approach to racism and discrimination in any form. Find out more about our culture and the 'Race at Work Charter' here.
The Jaguar Land Rover B.A.M.E network represents, advocates and supports our Black, Asian and minority ethnic members of the Jaguar Land Rover family. Julian Thomson, Jaguar Design Director and executive sponsor of the B.A.M.E network, said: “It’s vitally important that we each recognise our role as advocates for equality and proactively support the drive for positive change. Creativity and innovation thrive in an environment where the skills, ideas and perspectives come from a diverse team that truly represents the tastes and aspirations of our customers. Our future success depends on having a talented global workforce that accurately reflects the world we live in.”
Grant McPherson, Executive Director for Manufacturing, and executive sponsor for diversity and inclusion, said: “I'm proud to champion our diversity and inclusion network. Nothing's more important than our people, and we all share the responsibility to look out for one another and treat everyone with respect, dignity and kindness. Embracing and reflecting the variety of our customers in the outside world can only make us a better, stronger team.”
