Congratulations to our Inspiring Automotive Women Award winners

The Inspiring Automotive Women Awards recognise those women throughout the automotive sector who make a difference every day to inspire, mentor, encourage inclusion, support colleagues, and overall make a difference to their businesses.

Yesterday we saw three outstanding Jardine Motors Group colleagues recognised by the Automotive 30% Club as Inspiring Automotive Women. In addition Group HR Director Clare Wright received the Inclusive Leadership Award.

Group HR Director Clare Wright said "Over 225 inspirational women from across the industry were nominated for these prestigious awards and I am very proud of our winners Hayley Keatinge, Sadie Lowe and Amanda Mogan-Wilson. I am also very humbled to have received the Inclusive Leadership Award."

CEO Neil Williamson also shared his congratulations saying “Congratulations to our 2020 Inspiring Automotive Award winners for their achievement by having a real impact, making a difference, and being an inspiring role model to others. I’m really proud that we have supported these awards as we continue to show our ongoing commitment to promote and celebrate female talent in our industry.”

Inspiring Automotive Women Awards 2020

Hayley Keatinge - Head of Business

Recognised for her positive can-do attitude and ability to support her team during times of change, as well as encouraging her colleagues to push themselves to develop and enhance their skills in new areas, Hayley is a true inspiration to those around her and an asset to Jardine Motors Group.

Hayley said "Winning this award and being recognised for being able to inspire people in the current climate is incredibly overwhelming. It’s very important that I can promote a working environment that everyone can thrive in and fulfil their potential, and these awards absolutely underpin this. It also encourages other female colleagues to keep pushing themselves and to help bring others along with them."

Sadie Lowe – Marketing Executive

Selected for her constant drive to seek new innovative ways of working within her division and promoting diversity in a traditionally male dominated environment, Sadie is a deserving winner of the Inspiring Automotive Women Award.

On receiving news of her award, Sadie said "I was over the moon to hear that I had won an Inspiring Automotive Women Award, and to say that I am proud, and shocked, is an understatement. I have worked for JMG Audi for 12 years now, and each year I feel more proud of the company I work for and the team of people that I am a part of. I am delighted that my dedication to our company and my passion in my role is acknowledged in my day to day work ethic and values."

Amanda Mogan-Wilson - Head of Communications & Engagement

Striving to change outdated perceptions of the automotive industry, increasing engagement across the board, and empowering all colleagues to have a voice and be involved as well as sharing her passion for colleague wellbeing are just some of the reasons why Amanda has been recognised for this award.

Amanda said "I feel really honoured to have been nominated and receive this award. I don't think of myself as a role model or inspirational in anyway, I just love what I do and what to make a difference to those around me as well as make JMG a great place to work. So to be recognised and awarded for doing what I enjoy is something I'm going to build on by working with a network of new mentees (I've recently become a mentor for the Social Mobility Foundation and Women Ahead) as well as support driving our Inclusion strategy and continuing to find new ways to connect and engage with colleagues across the Group so they feel included."
