Relive Women & Automotive 2019

Gain the Power to Lead

The Women & Automotive Canadian Leadership Forum is a one-day forum for revolutionary leaders, risk takers and agents of change to share and discuss practical approaches for advancing women into leadership roles in the Canadian automotive industry. We promote an atmosphere for the dissemination of knowledge from women leaders, employers and programs supporting these leaders and women who aspire to lead the industry themselves.

Women & Automotive aims to provide women entering the automotive industry with the education, networking and career opportunities preparing them for top-tier leadership roles. Also, beyond just networking, we hope that Women & Automotive leads to connections between mentors and mentees, forging key relationships leading to successful careers.

Since we compact the forum into a single day at the beautiful Westin Harbour Castle in downtown Toronto, Women & Automotive grants working women (and men!) a prime opportunity to quickly commute, saturate themselves with knowledge and return to their home, brimming with contacts and confidence.

    By day’s end, audience members walked away with new friends and mentors as well as tools to become greater leaders, better mentors, and stronger advocates to spur positive change in the automotive industry.

    Though all of the content was valuable, for me a key highlight of the day was hearing stories of the obstacles female leaders have had to overcome to reach their professional aspirations.
