 The job of a lifetime is something most aspire to but, for some, the fantasy simply is much too difficult to even comprehend.

Brown is a 21-year veteran of the automotive industry, and she has spent 18 of those years at Volkswagen Group of America (VWGoA). There she found the “job of a lifetime,” despite being a woman in a male-dominated industry.

Today, as Brown serves as Volkswagen’s Diversity and Inclusion Consultant, her passion for diversity and inclusion is fulfilled daily.

“I firmly believe that work-place diversity increases employee engagement and drives organizational performance. It’s a win-win,” said Brown, who has been in her current role since 2014. “I’m passionate about diversity and inclusion in the workplace. In my position, every day is exciting, because I have an opportunity to make a real impact at work and in the community.”
