Gender inequality is a huge problem in the automotive industry. Working for an events company, and having worked in marketing, events and media for most of my career, I have mostly worked in very balanced environments – and in fact on several, occasions, as a man, I’ve been in the minority. Now I’m working in the Automotive sector, that’s changed. Most of the AutoSens team are female, but most of our customers are male.
An old friend of mine, with 3 tours in Afghanistan (running a company of engineers servicing everything from Chinooks to Tanks) under their belt, is now second in command of the local Army Reserve unit. They are also the production line manager of a large car manufacturer. She also likes kittens.
