Shunda Robinson Implements World-Class Initiatives at GM Financial

Shunda Robinson is the Global Vice President of Diversity & Inclusion at GM Financial. She has been instrumental in helping the organization remain at the forefront of industry transformation by bringing in leaders and professionals from diverse backgrounds who help pioneer innovations impacting customers and empowering team members to develop better solutions. Shunda is most proud of the positive impact that increasing D&I initiatives has had on GM Financial's bottom line. Her successes include increasing mindfulness of D&I in the hiring and promotion process, launching Employee Resource Groups, developing a D&I Council and implementing a world class mentoring program.

Currently, Shunda is working to expand and encourage support of Employee Resource Groups, like the Working Parents ERG. Her goal is to make the ERG more than a focus group. She believes the Working Parents ERG should bring diverse and multigenerational team members together to foster a space where they feel comfortable discussing their particular identities. Through her efforts, organizational leaders are now proactively presenting topics of personal importance to their teams. Through her inspirational leadership, Shunda strives to help D&I reach all organizational levels and to be engrained in the business culture.
