Women & Automotive is a one day forum for change agents, risk takers, and revolutionary leaders to share and discuss practical approaches for advancing women into leadership roles in the Canadian automotive industry. The second annual forum will be hosted on Wednesday, April 5, 2017 at the Westin Harbour Castle in downtown Toronto.
What to know who attended the inaugural event last year?
If you want to learn more and share knowledge about recruiting and retaining women employees in the dealership, to expanding opportunities within the manufacturer, finance, banking, insurance and supplier segments of the Canadian automotive industry—this one day forum is for you!
Our intention is to create an environment that promotes the exchange and spread of knowledge from female leaders, the employers and programs that support those leaders, and women who aspire to be industry leaders.
As more women join the automotive industry, it is important to provide them with the education, networking and career advancement opportunities that will prepare them to assume leadership and decision-making roles.
A key to a successful career is finding a mentor who will teach, inspire, and nudge as you achieve and set new goals. We hope this forum will be a place where individuals can connect with a mentor or mentee.
Women & Automotive will kick off Wednesday, April 5 at 9:00 a.m. and will run until 4:00 p.m. The program also includes lunch and networking breaks for all registered participants.
Pricing*: USD $395 (or CAD$530 subject to daily conversion rate)
