Aston Martin Sponsors Plant Visit for Future Female Leaders on International Women’s Day

British luxury auto brand Aston Martin is forging ahead with its “Racing.Green” corporate strategy unveiled in April 2022. Among its sustainability and electrification targets are net-zero emissions across the entire supply chain by 2039 and a fully-electrified vehicle lineup by 2030. Furthermore, Aston Martin wants women to fill 25 percent of leadership roles within the company to establish a more diverse workforce in the next five years.

Increasing Female Leadership

As a champion of workplace diversity, Aston Martin is sponsoring a plant visit for women to celebrate International Women’s Day. In addition, the automaker wants to inspire the next generation of talented women with a special event at its Newport Pagnell facility.

“Aston Martin is passionate about increasing female leadership at the company and inspiring girls to consider the huge career opportunities within the automotive sector,” said Simon Smith, Aston Martin’s Chief People Officer. “Through initiatives like this event on International Women’s Day and our successful Graduate/Apprenticeship programs, we are confident that we can find the right talent for the future of Aston Martin.”

The event includes a comprehensive tour of Aston Martin Works in Newport Pagnell and the carmaker’s heritage dealership, a panel conversation with the Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant Formula One team, and a meet-and-greet with Clare Lansley, the chief information officer of the Aston Martin Formula One team.

“This year, the Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant F1 team joins forces with Aston Martin to embrace equity and offer opportunities to ambitious women and girls,” Lansley said. “We are excited to host the event at Aston Martin’s heritage site as we continue to drive an inclusive workplace for all.”
