Women of Color Conference awards STEM FCA US LLC employees

A crowning achievement.

That’s what was made when 19 FCA US LLC women earned awards for excellence in technical and managerial leadership at the annual Women of Color Conference in Detroit, Michigan.

The conference honored significant achievements made by female technical professionals across the country in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) professions.

“The Women of Color Awards celebrate many of the country’s most promising and influential female technical business leaders,” said Brian Johnson, Senior Manager, Diversity & Inclusion, FCA US LLC.

“FCA US LLC is proud that our women technical leaders are regarded consistently among such accomplished professionals.”

This marks a continuation of recognition from various diversity organizations by FCA US LLC employees, including Black Engineer of the Year, Women of Color, HENAAC Great Minds in STEM and others.

Earlier this year, the automotive brand was recognized by Latina Style magazine for the 15th year as one of the top-12 companies in the U.S. for Hispanic women to work. Before that, FCA US LLC received honors as a Noteworthy Company for Diversity and Veterans by DiversityInc.
