We are deep into February — and closer to the Women & Automotive event — and as we put the final touches on our agenda (which recently went live!), our team turns its collective focus to spreading the word and gathering the best audience yet for the fourth year of Women & Automotive: A Canadian Leadership Forum.

And if you’ve been following Women & Automotive news, you’ll know that Early Bird Registration for the event opened with the launch of the New Year. But the chance to save $100 on online registration and $200 on on-site reg is up this Thursday, Feb. 21.

The early bird rate of $295 will give you access to six educational sessions, including three keynotes, featuring more than 15 leading women in the Canadian auto industry.

Early Bird Registration ends Thursday, Feb. 21! Register now.

At Women & Automotive, the content of the event is our top priority, and we believe this is what will work to grow 2019 attendance and expand the “conversation” first launched in 2016.

Because that’s what Women & Automotive is about — starting a conversation. A conversation about empowerment, leadership, equality, progress and more. What ties this all together is a collective mission to advance more women into leadership roles in the Canadian automotive industry

According to Grant Thornton’s “Women in Business: Beyond Policy to Progress,” women held under a quarter of senior roles across the world in 2018.

To turn that mission into action, you have to start the discussion from the top — and engage today’s leaders in auto across the industry. And we think we’ve done just that by enlisting top women leadership from across the auto biz for our 2019 event. For example, our C-Level Panel features execs from Kijiji, TradeRev, Zanchin Automotive Group, and Scotiabank, with titles ranging from executive vice president and VP to director and principal.

After reaching an all-time high of 32 in 2017, the number of female Fortune 500 CEOs has slid back down to 24. That’s a one-year decline of 25%.

Are you ready to join the Women & Automotive conversation? There’s still time to register before the Early Bird Reg period ends!
