Accelerate Auto – Advocating for Black Talent in Automotive

Emiliano Void is the National Operations Manager at Cox Automotive Canada, but this session isn’t about Cox Automotive. We’re getting the inside scoop on a new not-for-profit advocating for Black talent in Canada’s automotive industry.  Accelerate Auto is an inclusive and representative representation of the Black experience across Canadian automotive and the talent of the people we have working in this space and on increasing Black representation and career advancement opportunities within automotive. This episode of TADA talks is supported by Cox Automotive.

Emiliano Void

Chair of Accelerate Auto & National Operations Manager at Cox Automotive

Emiliano Void was born and raised in Montreal and is the last of seven kids. He’s lived in Nova Scotia, Maine, Boston and currently splits time between Vermont and Montreal.

His career in automotive started a little over 5 years ago when he joined Cox Automotive in the US. That lead him back to home to Montreal a few years ago when he joined Cox Automotive Canada, where he currently occupies the role of National Operations Manager.

Emiliano started getting very involved in social organizing last year and started a local organization on Black financial advancement, co-founded a Black focused Employee Resource Group at Cox called the Black Employee Network and most recently an industry wide initiative against anti-Black and systemic racism across automotive called Accelerate Auto.

When he’s not busy working or fighting the good fight, Emiliano spends his time working out, boxing, playing basketball, doing yoga and reading. His favorite activity however, is hanging out with friends and family.
