The energy behind the company’s sponsorship of Motor City Pride comes from its LGBTQ+ business resource group, Prism LGBTQ+ Alliance.

Celebrating 25 years, the Prism LGBTQ+ Alliance is one of 11 Stellantis Business Resource Groups representing a range of affinity communities, including African, Hispanic, Asian, LGBTQ+, Veteran, Middle East, people with disabilities, Native Americans and women.

Stellantis Business Resource Groups, individually and collectively, pursue initiatives that enhance the work culture of Stellantis North America by focusing on member career development, celebrating multicultural differences, and bringing value to the company and to external communities through voluntary, charitable and strategic activities.

Prism LGBTQ+ Alliance, originally named People of Diversity and then Gay and Lesbian Alliance, was founded and organized by LGBTQ+ employees of the former Chrysler Corporation in 1996 and officially recognized by the company in June 1997.

Over the years, the group has provided support and an ally to LGBTQ+ employees, family members, and community organizations and events, such as Motor City Pride.

The company is recognized as a leader among U.S. employers for providing national partner benefits to its employees in 2000 and has consistently achieved high scores on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index since establishment of the reference.
