Why Women in Broking matters

”Automotive is a brilliant sector to work in but although there has been an improvement and a desire to bridge the gap, women continue to have a small representation within the industry. There is still a lack of awareness about the variety of roles available, especially among women, and we need to be getting that message out much, much earlier – in schools and universities.

With more women choosing a career in the industry, there are more of us to drive the positive change towards closing the gender gap supported by various initiatives such as the great work of Broker News, profiling some of the incredible women in the industry and raising awareness.

Their awards ceremony earlier this year included the Women in Broking award, which I was extremely fortunate to win, and this recognition is paramount to supporting women in the sector.”
