Alabama automakers to hold diversity conference

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – The Alabama Automobile Manufacturers Association (AAMA) is set to hold its annual Supplier Diversity Conference on Thursday.

The event is organized with the aim of promoting inclusion in a rapidly changing automotive industry.

The conference is a one-day meeting bringing together electric car manufacturers, suppliers and infrastructure professionals to discuss the future of electric vehicles in Alabama.

As the world transitions from gasoline engines to electric vehicles, AAMA President Ron Davis told News 19 it’s important for this event to tell the story, now more than ever, that the industry needs to be more diverse to truly succeed.

“We want to have meaningful conversations about how to work better together. How can we then dig deeper within ourselves, dig deeper into the industry and what are the opportunities in the supply base as we look to electric vehicles for smaller and minority businesses to engage,” Davis said.

Multiple comprehensive sessions will focus on a range of thought-provoking topics, including the benefits of supplier diversity partnerships and programs and resources available to suppliers.

City of Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle will kick off the event at the Von Braun Center by highlighting the city’s opportunity to be at the forefront of electric vehicle manufacturing.

The conference starts at 8:30 a.m. You can find more information about the Diversity Conference on the event website here.
