A Message from FORD LEADERSHIP

Hau Thai-Tang

Since 1978, Ford's Supplier Diversity Development (SDD) program has cultivated successful relationships between the company and its minority, women and veteran owned supplier businesses.

These suppliers are playing an important role in the company's revitalized and expanding portfolio of high-quality, safe, fuel-efficient products equipped with smart technologies.

I believe the fundamental purpose of a corporation is to make people's lives better, and we can do that by creating outstanding products, by investing in communities, and by using our position as a leader to economically empower minority, women and veteran business enterprises.

Jim Hackett

President and Chief Executive Officer, Ford Motor Company
