Following last year’s success and in celebration of International Women’s day, the Automotive 30% Club announces the launch of their 2020 Inspiring Automotive Women Awards. Nominations are now officially OPEN!!!
Sponsored by Jardine Motors Group for the second year running, the awards have been designed to recognise and celebrate the unsung heroes of the automotive industry and are unique in the sector, as any individual can nominate a woman within the Automotive 30% Club member companies irrespective of role or seniority, on the basis that they have personally been inspired by them. Winners, therefore, are likely to be working at all levels and in all areas of the sector.
There will be 31 winners selected by an independent judging panel, one of whom will be named the overall winner for 2020.
The awards ceremony will take place on Tuesday 16th of March 2021* during a black tie evening dinner at the prestigious Royal Automobile Club in London. The RAC Club is one of the world’s foremost private members’ clubs, built on the foundation of being the United Kingdom’s oldest motoring organisation and so what better venue to break the glass ceiling by celebrating and recognising all of our Inspiring Automotive Women award winners.
Julia Muir, Founder, Automotive 30% Club, CEO, Gaia Innovation comments: comments: “I launched the awards because I know that all of our member companies have amazing women working in their teams. We must make them more visible and show our appreciation, so let’s give these women the recognition they deserve and nominate our inspiring automotive women.”
Neil Williamson, Chief Executive, Jardine Motors Group comments: “It’s really important that industry business leaders get behind this initiative and show their support as I believe we need more advocates to help make change happen. Giving female colleagues who make a difference in each of our businesses and the wider industry, the chance to have their contributions recognised and celebrated is vital to helping us all retain our talent. So I urge you all to seek out female colleagues and nominate them for this award.”
Clare Martin, Group HR Director, Jardine Motors Group adds: “We’re delighted to once again be sponsoring this year’s Inspiring Automotive Women awards. It’s a great opportunity to celebrate the success of the many inspiring women within our industry and encourage female talent across the board regardless of role or level. These awards showcase the motivation and pride of women in automotive and we’re proud to support their fantastic achievements.”
Nominator’s will simply answer a set of three questions to fully explain their reasons for nominating. So what are you waiting for? Nominate a woman who inspires you via the online form here. Nominations will close on Monday 5th October* at midnight.

*All of the dates above have been updated. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we made the difficult decision to push back our scheduled plans for the Inspiring Automotive Women Awards 2020. The safety of our judges, winners, club members and our team is absolutely paramount and remained at the forefront of our decision making throughout.
