Creating a support network across our dealer and broker partners, we’re proud to announce the launch of our first women’s network, GROW – Generating Real Opportunities for Women. Aiming to increase female representation within the automotive industry, we’re navigating growth for women on the forecourt and beyond.
Last year, Managing Director, Karl Werner, joined the Automotive 30% Club making a commitment to its '30 by 30' strategy (a pledge to fill at least 30% of key leadership positions with talented women by 2030), a goal the business achieved this year with a 50/50 split within our Senior Leadership Team. An important move in his personal commitment to supporting and encouraging diversity and inclusion, Karl is also a key sponsor of GROW noting;
“Embracing diversity and inclusion in all its guises is central to MotoNovo’s culture. We want to play our part in creating a fairer society and have taken big strides to ‘raise our own bar' as an employer. Broadening this out to support and encourage people and businesses across the automotive sector to adopt similar change and feel the benefits we see building is a natural extension. As an active member of the Automotive 30% Club, I am delighted to be the sponsor of our Women Network and look forward to playing my part in championing it as a platform for positive change.”
Working alongside Karl is Senior Retention Manager, Claire Fussey, who is acting as chairperson;
“Supporting growth in the automotive industry is an exciting prospect. Supporting the growth of female talent is something I am super passionate about. Together we can all make the difference to a brighter future”
To kick start things, we’re hosting a number of virtual and networking events for our dealer partners, sharing news, insights and resources to help progress diversity in the automotive world.
