IMI appoints Head of Equity, Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging

The IMI has moved Sally-Anne Hodder to the role of Head of Equity, Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging (EDI).

Previously, she was Head of HR & Business Support for the organisation where EDI was a significant focus. At that time, she was a key stakeholder in the IMI’s Diversity Task Force. She also led the Physical & Non-Visible Disabilities working group within it. This work also complements the IMI’s There’s More to Motor perception campaign.

Commenting on her new role, Sally said: “It is an honour to take on this new role. I am passionately committed to ensuring constant learning in all areas of EDI. It’s vital that we ensure our own internal work for IMI colleagues is guided by the insights we have collectively gained. We also need to bring these insights to benefit the wider automotive sector.”

Lesley Woolley, Chief Operating Officer at the IMI added: “Automotive employers are keen to make changes to become more inclusive, but many do not know how or where to start. Sally is already helping these businesses learn from each other’s experiences, challenges and successes.”
