International Women's Day: Autotech Group CEO joins Automotive 30% Club

Published:  08 March, 2021

Coinciding with International Women’s Day (Monday 8 March), Autotech Group CEO Gavin White has become the latest member of The Automotive 30% Club, which exists to promote a better gender balance within the automotive industry by filling 30% of automotive leadership roles with women by 2030.

Gavin White observed: “I am delighted to join the Automotive 30% Club. The colleges we are working with through Autotech Academy have many women studying for automotive qualifications and, as with male students, we need to ensure that they secure a role within the industry once they complete their studies. Currently, up to 10,000 college leavers with an automotive qualification, are lost to the industry each year as they struggle to secure a role, and many of these are women. Through Autotech Academy, we hope to drastically reduce this loss. It is also vital that we start demonstrating the benefits of a career within the sector at a young age. By attracting a new generation of women we can then begin to close the talent gap.”

Julia Muir, Founder of the Automotive 30% Club and CEO of Gaia Innovation added: “We are very pleased to welcome Gavin White of Autotech Group into the Automotive 30% Club, as our latest member. Autotech is a forward thinking, innovative organisation and I truly believe that Gavin will help to drive change throughout the industry, alongside the support of our current network of CEOs and MDs. We’re delighted to welcome Gavin on board, in order to help strive to achieve a greater diverse gender balance throughout the industry.”
