Women only represent 13.7 percent of the workforce in the automotive industry according to the 2016 Canadian Census. With the labour shortage industry is currently facing, it has never been a better time to open the conversation to both women and men about promoting inclusivity for all.
On May 26 at 11 am, AutoCareersBC will host the webinar, “Change Begins with Us – Women in the Automotive Industry.” As the automotive industry is still predominantly male, this will be a conversation to discuss and identify not only what challenges women are facing coming into industry but also what opportunities are available to them.
“Change Begins with Us” refers to not just women, but also men. In order to break down barriers, we need to bring men and women together to openly engage in finding ways to make the workplace the best it can be and that begins with all of us. Change comes one conversation at a time.
This event is open to everyone: Are you a student wondering what career opportunities are available to you? An employer looking for ways to improve your brand to attract new talent? Someone working in industry that feels they face discrimination? Then please join us!
Our host Dejla Sabanac, ARA industry advisor and AutoCareersBC program coordinator, will be joined by Guest Speakers Chloe Jess and Mike Bocsik to discuss the skills and attributes women bring to industry, the advantages and disadvantages of being a women in industry, the importance of attitude, and what to do if you feel you are being discriminated against.
We look forward to seeing you all there!
