Awareness. Unity. Empowerment.

Diversity & Inclusion

“D&I is not just about recognizing the difference between us all, but accepting, embracing, and celebrating them as the true gifts they are intended to be. We can all be a positive force.”

Magna's 3 Key Strategic D&I Priorities



  • Diversity and Inclusion training for all employees 
  • Leadership workshops on being inclusive leaders
  • Curated Diversity and Inclusion resources and tools available for all employees to access

Create an Inclusive Workplace

  • Embedding Diversity & Inclusion into key talent processes
  • Employee resource communities



Through our many partnerships we encourage the growth and development of under-represented talent and underserved communities in STEM and skilled trade careers.

Together, we can make the difference

We are growing our Employee Resource Communities, inviting our employees to share their diverse backgrounds, ideas and  perspectives to help make Magna a more inclusive workplace for all.

Employee led, voluntary communities intended to attract a diverse employee base, provide the inclusion of ideas and solutions and create opportunities for mentoring and career development.

Employee Resource Communities

The Women's eXchange Employee Resource Community (ERC) strives to empower, develop and recognize its female employees and attract new female talent to Magna. Through mentorship, career development and networking opportunities, this community will promote an inclusive environment to enable women to advance their skills and leadership potential in all functional positions with a focus in science, technology, engineering and math areas (STEM).

Promoting an environment that recognizes the racial and ethnic backgrounds, works with our leaders to remove barriers and supports the career interests of our employees.

We strive to empower, develop and recognize our employees from all walks of life and encourage open dialogue and discussion to strengthen our footprint as an inclusive and diverse employer.

Promoting an inclusive workplace by supporting our LGBTQ+ employee base and providing a safe space to network, share ideas, and experiences.

We foster open dialogue and discussion to strengthen our footprint as an inclusive and diverse employer. Together, we will help create an environment that lives up to our Fair Treatment principle of the Employee’s Charter, not because we have to, but because we want to.

We do this by raising awareness, celebrating Pride events, helping to develop LGBTQ+ talent, and giving back to the community. Success will be when we are all open to each other’s differences resulting in everyone feeling valued, welcomed, and encouraged to bring their whole selves to work.
