5 Tips for Women Entering the Automotive World

(from my personal experience)

  1. Build Your Knowledge: When entering the automotive world, it is essential to start with building your knowledge of cars and the industry. You don't have to be a mechanic to have a basic understanding of how cars work. Attend workshops and training sessions, read books, and educate yourself on the latest trends and technologies in the automotive industry.

  2. Find a Mentor/Friend: Finding a mentor can be incredibly helpful in navigating the automotive industry. Seek out a woman who is successful in the field and ask for advice and guidance. Having a mentor can help you make valuable connections, learn from their experience, and gain insight into the industry.

  3. Network: Networking is critical in any industry, and the automotive world is no exception. Attend industry events, join automotive groups on social media, and connect with other women who share your passion for cars. This will allow you to build relationships, gain valuable insights and advice, and keep up to date with the latest trends.

  4. Be Confident: Entering a male-dominated industry can be intimidating, but it's essential to be confident in your abilities and knowledge. Don't be afraid to speak up and share your ideas, ask questions, and challenge assumptions. 

  5. Embrace Your Passion: Lastly, don't forget to embrace your passion for cars. Whether you're a mechanic, engineer, designer, or just an enthusiast, your love of cars is what brought you to the industry. Embrace it, and let it drive you to success. Your passion and dedication will set you apart from the rest!

These are just a few tips I've gathered over the past 15+ years. All in all, get out there, and be YOU!
