Autocar Great Women in the British Car Industry 2022

Run by Autocar in association with the SMMT, and judged by a panel of automotive experts, the Great Women in the British Car Industry initiative recognises the leading women in the UK’s car industry.

The finalists will be chosen based on their seniority and level of influence and will be announced at a ceremony, along with the overall winner, on 14 June. The event will also include presentations from keynote speakers, a panel debate and a networking session. 

The car industry's most influential women will be selected from the following 12 areas of the car industry: Aftersales and Workshop, Executive, Government Affairs, Marketing, Manufacturing, Operations, People Development, PR and Communications, Sales, Purchasing, Vehicle Development, and Mobility and Digital. A winner will be selected in each category, with the overall victor then chosen from that list.

In addition to the leading women in the British car industry, there is a category for apprentices that celebrates new talent in the sector at the beginning of their career.
