Nominations for rising stars in Autocar’s Great British Women Top 100 now open

Nominations have opened for the 2019 Autocar Great British Women in the Car Industry – Rising Stars event, which celebrates rising female stars in the automotive world.

The ground-breaking annual industry initiative, which is in its fourth year, will recognise prominent female rising stars at the Awards event taking place on Wednesday 19 June.

Run in partnership with the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), Autocar’s Great British Women in the Car Industry – Rising Stars event honours the achievements of future women leaders across the breadth of the automotive sector.

 Autocar recognises the top 100 rising women in the industry from a host of categories (listed in full below) including Sales, Marketing, Manufacturing and Vehicle Development, with one overall winner taking home the top award.

New for 2019, the New Mobility and Digital Solutions category encourages nominees who work in a role which may not have existed 10 years ago, with a focus on jobs that are subject to change in the business, whether that be digital or technical innovation. Another category, for apprentices, celebrates women who are just starting their career in the industry.

Nominations for this year’s Awards must be registered by 23:59 on 17 April, and can be submitted by candidates themselves, or nominated by their peers.

The shortlisted winners will be revealed at the ceremony in central London on Wednesday 19 June. The afternoon ceremony will run from 1.30pm to 5.30pm and feature presentations from key industry figures (to be announced soon), a panel debate and networking session.

Space for the event is strictly limited, with priority given to winners and past winners. However, a limited number of tickets should be available. Anyone interested in attending the event should contact Autocar at
