30% Club Automotive Group Inspiring Women Event at Silverstone

 

On May 24th at the Silverstone motor racing circuit the 30% Club Automotive Group held a Careers Speed Networking Event in partnership with the Education and Employers Task Force’s Inspiring Women Campaign. 100 girls from 10 UK schools met 20 leading automotive women from companies including Bentley, Toyota, Kia, VW Group, Carwow, and Vertu plc. The event was opened by Julia Muir, CEO of Gaia Innovation Ltd and the Founder of the 30% Club Automotive Group, and co hosted by Miriam Gonzalez Durantez, the Founder of Inspiring Women. The girls were then given presentations about automotive careers for the 4th Industrial Revolution, VW Group apprenticeships, and life in the automotive manufacturer Kia. We received very positive feedback from the schools, and we have heard that work experience placements have been offered to some of the girls.
