Numerous employees of the BMW Group throughout the world are involved in social and ecological causes. The BMW Group actively promotes a low-threshold way of entering this social involvement, such as through a Social Week, with series of lectures and trial events, or the Social Marketplace, a digital platform on which employees can obtain and exchange information on charitable projects. In addition, many employees are involved in internal networks. Included among these are women’s networks at numerous locations or the BMW Group PRIDE, an initiative committed on a cross-border basis to the interests of the LGBTQ+* community. For ten years, particularly deserving engagements have been honoured with the BMW Group Award for Social Commitment. Every award carries a sum of €10,000 and benefits the respective aid project directly.
