Women In Automotive

#YesSheCan is based in Nottingham offering diversity and inclusion training, brand awareness consultancy and coaching to businesses across the UK.

Women only represent 13% of the automotive industry in the UK.

This figure can stem from under-representation, viable career paths and the inability to progress to senior roles as a woman.

The Statistics

  • 40% in the automotive industry would choose a different career path if they had the chance to start over, according to a report.
  • Only 9% of garages in the UK employ a female mechanic according to a survey.
  • The biggest divide in automotive careers was within warehouse roles – 0% of women surveyed were interested in pursuing that path compared to men.
  • 43% of women do not trust the automotive industry
  • 57% of women believe there is an industry bias towards men getting more leadership roles.

Be Part Of Change

At #YesSheCan, we are optimistic this can change. However, change can only happen when leaders from the top make a visible and long-lasting shift internally. This can include transforming recruitment processes, breaking down stereotypes and gender bias and engaging women at every level of the industry.
We support women across all careers especially those in male-dominated industries by offering a collection of stories from inspirational women on our blog and events.
We have successfully aided several businesses with our Diversity and Inclusion workshops. You can learn more about our D&I roadmap and how we can give that extra support for your business and employees.

#YesSheCan has a number of Services your business can access to help you to be more Diverse and Inclusive.
