The Automotive 30% Club are delighted to announce the launch of their 2021 Inspiring Automotive Women Awards, and would like to confirm that nominations are now officially OPEN!!!
Kindly sponsored by Jardine Motors Group for the third year running, the Inspiring Automotive Women Awards will continue to recognise and celebrate the unsung heroes of the automotive industry.
As in previous years, these particular awards remain unique in the sector, as any individual can nominate a woman from within the Automotive 30% Club Patron and member companies irrespective of role or seniority, on the basis that they have personally been inspired by them. This nomination process means that winners are likely to be working throughout all levels of the business and in all areas of the sector.
In total, there will be 31 Inspiring Automotive Women winners selected by an independent judging panel. One winner will be named overall Inspiring Automotive Woman of the Year for 2021.
The awards ceremony is set to take place in October 2021. The success of our 2020 virtual ceremony allowed winners to be recognised more widely throughout the sector, by featuring each winner in a separate social media post on the day of the awards ceremony. Each winner will also feature in an individual interview to be published on the Inspiring e-zine, to ensure that our Inspiring Automotive Women are celebrated for their contribution to the sector.
Julia Muir, Founder, Automotive 30% Club, CEO, Gaia Innovation comments:
“I launched the Inspiring Automotive Women Awards because I know that all of our member companies have amazing women working in a wide variety of roles in their teams, and we need to make them more visible and show our appreciation. They are diverse women making great contributions to the business at all levels, encouraging women to progress and men to be allies and advocates. They’re helping to attract more women to the sector through outreach activities or being involved in recruitment campaigns. I know you’ll be thinking of someone who fits the description. So let’s give these fantastic women the recognition they deserve and nominate our Inspiring Automotive Women.”
Neil Williamson, CEO, Jardine Motors Group comments:
“We are delighted to be sponsoring the Inspiring Automotive Women Awards for the third year running. It’s been brilliant to see how this event has grown and the traction it is gaining within the industry. As we strive to change the outdated perceptions of the automotive industry, the celebration of female talent plays an important part in challenging gender bias and creating inclusive cultures. As a Group, we are committed to nurturing, promoting and celebrating all the inspirational females across our industry. I would urge people to nominate all those females within their business who stand out for their ability to inspire and make a difference each and every day, whatever their role or level of seniority.”
