Episode #87: "Life Is a Highway"


2012-01-28-bendaveautoshow.jpgOn this episode of The Six Pack, we take our show on the road once again -- this time to Detroit! Our road trip took us to the Motor City, where we hit up the biggest car show around, the North American International Auto Show. We got a taste for a revitalized city, thanks in part to General Motors reclaiming its spot as the world's number-one automaker, as President Obama boasted during his State of the Union address Tuesday night.

While at the auto show, we got a tour from GM's Associate Director of Competitor Intelligence (aka Chief Spy), Adam Bernard. Adam broke down the who's who and the what's what at the show for us. "GM has 12 different employee research groups in the area of diversity. We are the ERG, Employee Resource Group, for LGBT and allied employees. We help educate leadership on LGBT issues," Adam said of how GM is reaching out to its gay employees and the greater LGBT community at large. "We know that LGBT consumers are more likely to buy from a company that treats their LGBT employees fairly."
