In the past 2 years, Ford Motor Company has settled with an EEOC Harassment Investigation for $10.125 Million and in March was ordered to pay $16.8 Million to an ex-employee for discrimination and retaliation. Unfortunately, allegations and lawsuits of discrimination are not new for Ford Motor Company. In fact, if you do a good Google search, these stories of mistreatment are widespread throughout the company. Even though they have all the policies in place, deep within the roots of the culture at Ford Motor Company is racism and sexism. One might even say that they can’t help it, Henry Ford was a racist openly admired by Adolf Hitler. 🤷🏿♀️
So how do you manage your career while working for companies like Ford Motor Company, who hold on to such an entrenched culture of racism and sexism?
