Automotive giant Volkswagen AG said it will donate $1 million to the Anti-Defamation League.

The money will go toward ADL workshops addressing issues at schools and in the workforce, including diversity training, programs aimed at cyber bullying and maintaining respectful working conditions, and anti-bigotry efforts.

“ADL’s initiatives and programs align with Volkswagen AG’s commitment to diversity in our workforce and in countries all around the globe,” Volkswagen board member Christian Klingler said in a statement Tuesday.

ADL National Director Abraham Foxman in a response to the statement said, “We are extremely gratified to have Volkswagen’s generous support as a partner in the fight against anti-Semitism, racism and bigotry.”

The Volkswagen group is the largest car manufacturer in Europe. Their brands include Volkswagen, Audi, SEAT, Skoda, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini and Scania.
