Women make up half of all car buyers. At the What Drives Her luncheon and panel, we listened to a group of experts in the automotive industry, including:
– Candice Crane from Hireology
– Kathy Gilbert from CDK Global
– Jody Hall from Steel Market
– The panel was moderated Bridget Brennan of the Female Factor
– The luncheon and panel was hosted by She Buys Cars
With women driving 70%-80% of consumer household spending and the fact that there are more women drivers than men, they shared with us how automakers are taking this into consideration when designing their cars. The fascinating thing was listening to them share how the industry has changed over the years, both for female employees and female consumers. They shared how there are many opportunities for women in the automotive industry. A key takeaway from Kathy Gilbert is for women to nurture their relationships in their careers.
