Ford Motor Company founder Henry Ford may have been associated with anti-semitism, but Ford exec Mark Fields told a congregation of Jewish business leaders that he encountered no discrimination as he rose through the ranks at the company. In fact Fields said in answer to a question from a member of the audience that he was amazed at everything Ford does to promote diversity among the ranks of its employees, from a strong interfaith support network to an environment that supports inclusions of all types of people.

Fields was the guest of honor at a luncheon by the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit.
