Women recognised at Twickenham

The Autocar Great British Women in the Car Industry event returns this year.

It aims to identify and promote the sector’s most promising stars and highlight the opportunities for careers within it.

Run by Autocar in association with the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), and backed by Direct Line Group, Ford and Jaguar Land Rover, the industry’s top 100 rising stars will be announced on June 21.

A series of panel debates, discussions and work groups will take place for winners and invited guests at Twickenham Stadium on the same day.

The top 100 will be selected from the following areas of the car industry: vehicle development, manufacturing, purchasing, retail, marketing, communications, apprentices, motorsport, design and executive. A winner will be selected in each industry sector, with an overall winner then being selected from that shortlist.

Candidates must be nominated by friends, colleagues or their employer. There is no age limit.
