Companies aren’t logos, or buildings, or car brands. Companies are made of people, and the people who make up Holden come from all walks of life. We wouldn’t have it any other way.
What’s so great about cultural diversity? Apart from a rocking events calendar – Diwali, Lunar New Year, Eid, Christmas and Harmony Day to name a few – the breadth of cultural backgrounds in our workforce simply makes our culture richer and more rewarding. We don’t just want to be tolerant – we’re going all out to be meaningfully inclusive.
Over the next year, we’ll be recognising and showcasing some of our people’s contributions to Holden and the country we all call home.. Be they game-changing employees, passionate community members, Australia’s First People or first generation Australians, we can’t wait to show you the change being driven by people we love.
Professor Munjed Al Muderis is an inspiration to us at Holden and demonstrates the valuable contribution that can be made to our society by all who have come to Australia from somewhere else.
As a refugee, Munjed spent 10 months in the Curtin Detention Centre. Today, he’s an Australian-trained orthopaedic surgeon and a tireless ambassador for the Australian Red Cross.
Munjed features as part of our ‘Supporting the Drivers of Change’ campaign. Holden will be rewarding one lucky individual with a $50,000 grant, for driving change in their community.
