OESA champions the voice of automotive suppliers and our values represent a culture that treats those we serve with professionalism and respect. Recent social and racial events have shed light on the necessity for more action and greater accountability as it relates to diversity and inclusion. OESA is committed to making changes at the association, in the automotive supplier industry and the community.  

I am pleased to share the OESA Diversity & Inclusion Statement; it is our mantra that will guide many of our actions moving forward:

OESA fosters a respectful, diverse, and collaborative community. We are stronger together because we promote inclusion in all aspects of our industry. Please join us by embracing and honoring this commitment.

This commitment will be shared at OESA events and council meetings to remind each other that we all have a responsibility to create a more collaborative and diverse environment. To put OESA’s commitment into action, we are initiating opportunities for OESA members to learn more about diversity and inclusion activities, and to support the industry’s efforts in this area.

I am pleased to announce the formation of the MEMA-wide Diversity & Inclusion Council for vehicle suppliers; the council is presented in partnership with CADIA.  It meets quarterly to help members define DEI strategies, learn best practices and hear from experts in the DEI space. Additionally, this group will identify a shared plan for all suppliers to support the improvement of diversity and inclusion in their communities.

We hope you will join us in making the industry better through greater diversity and inclusion. To learn more and to sign up to become a member, click here or contact Keiyania Mann ( and 313.676.1670).  

As always, please feel free to contact me directly

With much hope,
