About Us

Inspiring Automotive Women is brought to you by the Automotive 30% Club, founded in 2016 by Julia Muir, CEO of Gaia Innovation Ltd.

Inspiring Automotive Women Day

Our first Inspiring Automotive Women Day event was hosted at Silverstone Motor Racing Circuit, in 2016. The event was in partnership with the Education and Employers Task Force, and 100 female students from 10 secondary schools from across the country were invited. The female students were inspired by 20 leading automotive women from companies including Bentley, Toyota, Kia, VW Group, Carwow, and Vertu Plc.

In 2019, in addition to our large anchor day event which was sponsored by Volkswagen Group UK and held at their National Learning Centre on May 3rd, we facilitated 24 school visits, which connect volunteers from within our member companies to schools local to them with the aim of inspiring female pupils to consider careers within the automotive sector.

Inspiring E-Zine

Through our sponsorship with Toyota GB Plc, we have been able to create and curate Inspiring, an E-Zine housed here on our website. Inspiring is the digital platform that connects individual women's networks or development groups together into a "Super-Network". You can subscribe for FREE here.

The E-zine was officially launched in July 2019 during an intimate event hosted at Facebook, London, whereby guests were invited to learn more about the aim and purpose. You can read more about our launch here.
