Marshall Joins The UK Automotive 30% Club

We recently announced that we have become a member of the UK Automotive 30% Club. Just as a reminder the Club’s purpose is to achieve a better gender balance within the automotive industry, and with the aim of filling at least 30% of key leadership positions in the member organisations with women by 2030 through a “30 by 30” Strategy.

We have lots of work to do to increase the number of women working for our business at all levels to ensure we have a healthy and balanced pipeline of talent. In the meantime, we thought it would be nice to showcase some of the incredible women already doing a great job for us whether that be on the front line or in a management position.
