1 minute to read

The AADA was pleased to attend the St George Women in Automotive Breakfast for the second year running. Attendance this year was substantially more than last year, with women and men from all corners of the automotive industry. 

The breakfast was hosted by Phil Waugh, National Manager, St.George Auto Finance and the panel moderator was Edwina McCann, Vogue Editor-in-Chief. The panel was made up of three speakers from various backgrounds including Jessica Dane, Chair of the Australian Women in Motor Sport Commission (AWMSC), Amanda Laing, Foxtel’s Chief Commercial Officer and Molly Taylor, Professional Rally Driver.

‘Diversity is better’ was a strong theme from all speakers and a need for it to come from the grassroots and feed up though all levels of an organisation.  

Rebecca Frizelle, COO of Frizelle Prestige, presented a soft launch of a newly formed member association DANi – Diverse Auto Network Inc. This organisation has formed a Charter and a Committee that is busily putting the wheels into motion with networking opportunities, a mentoring program, online training and development, research and data insights, industry updates and an annual awards event. The official launch of DANi is scheduled for the beginning of the AADA Conference in September 2019.
