SEMA Announces Formation of DEI Steering Committee

By SEMA Editors

SEMA has a strong reputation for driving and supporting change within the automotive industry. Our collective passion and ability to advance the industry will best be realized through diverse communities that embrace and champion diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI).

The SEMA Board recently directed the formation of a new Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Steering Committee to prepare a DEI plan for the Association and how SEMA connects with the industry.

SEMA Vice President of People and Culture Jaelyn Young will chair the committee, which will be comprised of representation from SEMA's membership, the Board of Directors and SEMA staff and include a professional DEI consultant and advisor.

To ensure our efforts are far-reaching, we are asking if there are interested SEMA members with a passion and expertise for diversity, equity and inclusion that would like to apply to be considered for the committee. We are anticipating significant interest, and the committee chair will be vetting all interested members before making final recommendations to the SEMA Board.
