Crain’s 2021 Notable Nonprofit Board MembersBack
Chief Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Officer, General Motors; Board Chair, Girl Scouts of Southeastern Michigan
Telva McGruder works toward uniting GM’s workforce and weaving diversity, equity and inclusion into the fabric of everything the automaker does. For the Girl Scouts, she helps leadership develop and implement the council’s strategic mission, which includes conveying the importance of developing girls and young women into leaders through a variety of programming. In the midst of a complicated year in which GSSEM had to move programming online, McGruder led efforts to find and install a new CEO who could elevate the Girl Scout experience.
“Telva serves as a role model for girls across our council, bringing her expertise in diversity, organizational leadership and advocacy for girls in STEM to our board,” said GSSEM CEO Monica Woodson.
