What Drives Her? Women Share How They Carved Successful Careers in the Male Dominated Auto Industry

The fourth annual What Drives Her Luncheon will spotlight how women are changing the automotive business from the inside out! An overdue change considering women account for or influence a staggering 85 percent of car purchases. Yet, they hold only 25 percent of jobs in the automotive field. Women in Automotive and a Girl’s Guide to Cars will be hosts of the luncheon.

This year’s program focuses on how women are shifting the public conversation, building automotive careers, and impacting sales and trends.

If you’re contemplating a career in the automotive industry or know of an interested student, don’t miss this event! I was beyond inspired after I attended last year. Women candidly shared how they overcame obstacles in an industry where they often didn’t feel welcome. I was both moved and energized as I considered my goals.

The panel speakers are paying their successes forward by mentoring and advising women and men looking to build a career. What better way to spend an afternoon than in a room of individuals lifting and encouraging you to nurture that inner spark and achieve what you set your mind to? Also, they’ll explain how they broke through barriers and stimulate you to do the same.
