Mazda UK continues to attracting more women into the automotive industry and the brand continues to be recognised as part of the UK Automotive 30% Club.
Established in 2016 by Gaia Innovation CEO Julia Muir, the Automotive 30% Club is a voluntary group comprised of Managing Directors and CEOs from automotive manufacturing, retailing and supplier companies with the aim of having women in at least 30 per cent of key leadership positions by 2030. With 30 per cent of its senior management team female, Mazda was the first member of the UK Automotive Club to successfully achieve this mix with its senior leadership team.
With 165 employees, of which 39.39 per cent are female, at the UK Head Office based in Dartford, Mazda’s female talent has been frequently recognised and honoured in Autocar’s annual Great Women in the British Car Industry initiative, which celebrates the top 100 influential women in the global automotive business.
Liesa Neal, HR Director at Mazda UK commented “At Mazda, we fundamentally believe that our employees are our most important asset, so we take pride in growing and empowering our talent from within and providing everyone with equal opportunities to develop skillsets to embrace new roles or challenges.”
