Women & Automotive 2019. It’s been four years of W&A now — and the conversation has begun and continued — thanks to our speakers, sponsors and attendees!

What’s ‘the conversation’, you might say? We are talking about discussions that empower Canadian women in the automotive industry. Advancing worthy candidates to leadership positions!

In 2019, we explored mindfulness in business, conscious leadership, how mistakes lead to success, leading with intention, advancing women to c-level, employee engagement and more.

If these topics mean something to you, then you should consider being a part of the 2020 Women & Automotive event — yep, we’re coming to Toronto this coming year, too!

But first let’s take a look back at our 2019 event this past week. This year, the event drew 227 attendees, up from just over 200 gathered in 2018. In fact, ever since the event’s launch in 2016, it has brought together over 200 change makers in the Canadian auto industry.
