AutoRaise committed to #BreakTheBias

AutoRaise is marking International Women’s Day by celebrating female apprentices and leaders in the industry.

For more than a century International Women’s Day has been celebrating the achievements of women, promoting positive change within industry and raising awareness about problems women face in their everyday lives.

This year’s event takes place under the theme, #BreakTheBias, and AutoRaise will mark the day by highlighting the great contribution women have made to the industry. It will also explore how gender expectations can significantly limit children’s career choices, but how many have broken the bias and gone on to have very successful careers and apprenticeships.

Dave Sargeant, AutoRaise chairman, said: “Accepting that women may suffer difficulties in the workplace is no longer acceptable in 2022. We all play a role in helping women’s success, which is why Gemini employs female apprentices who we hope will pave the way for other women to enter the business.”

Steve Thompson said: “It is vital to develop an environment that promotes inclusion and accelerates diversity in the workplace. Developing and enabling women to join our industry is not only the correct thing to do, but it is also critical to our industry’s success.”
