WWD 6th March 2020


The day was an opportunity to come together to celebrate and promote diversity in the industry and International Women’s Day, champion gender equality, and help inspire women to connect and succeed in the automotive industry, The event was also an opportunity to hear from and to celebrate our shortlisted nominees for the Barbara Cox Award – with the grand final being the announcement of the winner of the award.

Alison Jones, from Groupe PSA, was our worthy winner of the Barbara Cox Woman of the Year Award. And Leanne Christmas, from BMW Financial Services, and Sue Sansome, from the Sytner Group, both received highly commended awards. Huge congratulations to all who were nominated and the winners.
