About Us

CADIA was launched in 2017 with the idea that diverse talent had long been overlooked and undervalued in the automotive industry. CADIA set about to create avenues of success for people of all diversity dimensions in automotive by providing professional development opportunities. CADIA soon turned its focus to help create systemic, organizational change at the company level.

CADIA is a mission-driven, member-oriented organization to provide Diversity, Equity & Inclusion tools, networks, insights and practical advice to companies in the auto-mobility space.

CADIA helps organizations identify and remove obstacles and ingrained structures that are preventing even the most well-intentioned DEI initiatives from delivering the outcomes they aim to achieve.
