We Live Diversity!

Our approach to diversity is unique: we want to become an employer of choice in our community, and we believe that our diversity initiative is an important part of this goal. Volkswagen Chattanooga benefits from diversity by developing a better understanding of relationships with team members, customers, and business partners with a positive impact on the bottom line.

  • Diversity:

    • Understanding and valuing differences
    • Recognizing and respecting the value of all human differences
    • Leveraging those differences for the benefit of personal and business interactions
  • Our vision is to be widely recognized as a company that:

    • Values and respects the contributions of men and women of all backgrounds,
    • Embraces diversity of thought as a critical factor in its future success, and
    • Reflects the diverse population of our community.
