Inspiring Automotive Women is brought to you by the UK Automotive 30% Club, founded in 2016 by Julia Muir, CEO of Gaia Innovation Ltd.
Our Inspiring Automotive Women Day event was the start of our journey, 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.
We repeat our Inspiring Automotive Women Day event every year, and this year through the sponsorship of Volkswagen Group UK, in addition to our Day Event which was held at the VWGroup National Learning Centre on May 3rd, we have been able to facilitate 30 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.
2019 sees the launch of our inaugural Inspiring Automotive Women Awards, made possible by sponsorship from Jardine Motor Group, which will culminate in a swish black-tie awards dinner on October 3rd at the RAC Club in London. All women working in the UK Automotive 30% Club member companies are eligible for nomination by their peers, irrespective of role or seniority.
Through our sponsorship with Toyota GB Plc, we have been able to create and curate 'Inspiring', an E-Zine housed here on our website. Our ambition is simple... We are aiming for Inspiring to be the digital platform that connects individual women's networks or development groups together into a "Super-Network"
