The Automotive 30% Club’s Inspiration for Innovation Network Is Back, once again!

The Automotive 30% Club’s Inspiration for Innovation Network is back and is kindly again sponsored by Keyloop. 

Tom Kilroy, CEO of Keyloop and Patron of the Automotive 30% Club is passionate about addressing the gender balance in the automotive technology sector and building a diverse workplace. Our sponsor’s passion for diversity ensures that the schools within our Inspiration for Innovation Network will receive valuable guidance to help address the career gender stereotypes that may have prevented them from considering a future in the automotive and tech industries.

Once again, with the help of Keyloop and our incredible network of volunteers from within our Automotive 30% Club member organisations, we will connect with secondary schools and universities throughout the UK to create access to opportunities for students to have meaningful encounters with experienced representatives from a range of diverse backgrounds. Our network of volunteers ranges from CEOs and Senior Executives all the way through to graduates and apprentices and includes roles such as Marketing, Human Resources, Communications, Technology and Design, and many more. Our I4I Network activities are relevant for mixed-gender audiences and will showcase the importance of an inclusive culture and working environment in which all can thrive. 

Last year, The Automotive 30% Club launched its virtual “Career Conversations” film series, with the aim of sharing volunteers’ personal stories with both male and female students. The films focus on the volunteers’ education and career pathways and provide personal advice for young people, and we’re pleased to confirm that a further 20 Career Conversations will be recorded this year, and over 20 virtual visits will be making a comeback, with a variety of fresh faces. In addition 4 “Essential Skills” episodes will be part of this year’s activity, whereby a Senior Executive will focus on the importance of a particular skill that they feel is essential to progress in the automotive industry, bringing our library of these episodes to a total of 15. 

We can’t wait to help inspire the next generation of automotive employees with the support of Keyloop and our network of volunteers.
