Whiteley, United Kingdom – September 20, 2022 -The Automotive 30% Club, founded in 2016, is a voluntary network of Managing Directors and Chief Executive Officers from UK based automotive manufacturers, retailers, and suppliers. The network was founded by Julia Muir, CEO of Gaia Innovation Ltd, with the purpose of achieving a better gender balance within the automotive industry, and with the aim of filling at least 30% of key leadership positions in the member organisations with diverse women by 2030 through a “30 by 30” strategy. The membership is growing at a considerable pace which is great, with more and more automotive leaders joining.
John Watson, Managing Director of UK Insurance Claims at Innovation Group says,
“I am delighted to have become a member of the Automotive 30% club. Gender balance is a subject that’s close to my heart and working with Julia and the team on the “30 by 30” strategy to create opportunities for women across our business fits perfectly with our aspirations for a truly diverse and inclusive workspace. 50% of our current Senior Leadership Team are female, supporting a gender diverse workforce from the top and a dual approach to driving change. Our strategy leader will be Kate Goodwin, Network and Engineering Director here at Innovation Group, who has a 25-year career within our industry and is ideally placed to help us achieve our ambitions in this critical area.”
Julia Muir, CEO of Gaia Innovation says,
“I’m very pleased to welcome John Watson, MD of Innovation Group to the Automotive 30% Club. Innovation Group is a global leading insurtech business, providing solutions for the automotive sector such as warranty and service plans, and fleet accident claim management services. I shall look forward to assisting John and his progressive team with their 30 by 30 strategy and including them in our Club activities.”
