2018 Rainbow PUSH/CEF Global Automotive Summit

The Rainbow PUSH/CEF Automotive Project, an initiative of the Citizenship Education Fund, will hold its 19th Annual Rainbow PUSH Global Automotive Summit on November 1 - 2, 2018.

Please note the new location: Motor City Hotel and Conference Center; 2901 Grand River Avenue in Detroit. This year's theme is "Defining The Critical Path For Ethnic Minority Growth." More than 500 automotive executives, entrepreneurs, suppliers, dealers, consumers, government officials, automotive manufacturers, tech companies, advertising agencies, media outlets and others will join together to discuss strengthening and creating opportunities in the automotive industry for people of color.

We will also reveal the findings of our Automotive Diversity Scorecard. Once published every two years, 2018 marks the first year of the Scorecard being an annually published document. The Scorecard provides the automotive manufacturers' leadership teams an opportunity for self-evaluation related to diversity within their companies. In turn, it provides the Rainbow PUSH/CEF Automotive Project an aggregate report summary to serve as a resource for consultation regarding best practices in the industry.
