The Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) keeps an eye on industry leaders in many areas. They must uphold professional safety and quality standards, but the AIAG also looks out for efforts in support of corporate social responsibility.
Five individuals were honored this week for their efforts in corporate responsibility, showing an outstanding dedication within the global automotive industry. As a non-profit organization, AIAG can be trusted to release an accurate assessment of existing industry leaders.
The five individuals chosen are as follows:
1) Elly Bradford of the American Honda corporations
2) Christopher Harden of PTC
3) Al Hildreth of General Motors
4) Monique Oxender of Ford Motor Company
5) Kathy Phipps of HP Enterprise Services
These individuals were chosen because of their shown commitment to standards of social justice. Each person showed an exceptional amount of advocacy toward corporate responsibility, as well as implementation of policies that support social responsibility.
Progress within AIAG programs was also looked at, including involvement with e-learning training models, development of emission reporting tools, and implementation of new emission reporting tools. Each individual honored showed unique knowledge of these programs.
The honors were presented at the annual AIAG Corporate Responsibility Summit. The fact that such an event even exists is a great step in the right direction, while the impressive turn-out shows the growing attention of corporations to social responsibility standards.
The event includes a lot of discussion and information presentations, as well as honors and awards. This year’s Summit included presentations concerning best practices, industry trends, and ways to improve social responsibility in all areas of business—from legal and marketing to health and manufacturing. The event represents a big day of knowledge and recognition for those within the automotive industry.
