In addition to the manufacturing, assembly, and corporate facilities across the country, General Motors opened ITfocused Innovation Centers in Arizona, Georgia, and Texas as a part of its on-going IT Transformation. These IT Transformation Centers are working hard to also transform their local communities through Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), most notably the Hispanic Initiative Team, HIT. HIT members and leaders across the country have cultivated existing GM partnerships and programs, as well as forged new ones to develop a pipeline of success. The A World in Motion program where GM and SAE teach the full engineering lifecycle by building grade-appropriate projects such as straw rockets and jet powered cars has come to new cities thanks to these new technologies focused partnerships. GM’s HIT continues to develop new programs and partnerships, such as in Austin where they have adopted the dual-language River Oaks Elementary School. The students, administrators, and GM employees involved are gearing up for their second annual Day of Giving. They will celebrate their community partnership by preparing a meal for the 500-strong student body on November 19th, 2016. The dedicated volunteers of GM HIT are thrilled to work in their communities to cultivate a pipeline of talent in their local Hispanic communities; providing a route to success through engagement, career opportunities, and diverse positive role models.
