Women in Business and Charles Hurst announce two-year partnership
Women in Business and Charles Hurst Jaguar Land Rover have announced a two-year partnership which seeks to support business women in Northern Ireland.
The new partnership is set to empower and encourage women across the country with Women in Business’s suite of events and programmes including the annual Women in Business Awards, Spotlight on Success events and the Back to Business programme.
Roseann Kelly, Women in Business Chief Executive welcomed the new partnership commenting, “At Women in Business we strive to offer support for all business women in Northern Ireland, be they starting out in their career, at a senior level or self-employed. This exciting new partnership with Charles Hurst Jaguar Land Rover allows us to continue to offer and develop our range of activities and opportunities to help women in Northern Ireland reach their full potential.”
“This partnership comes at a time when collaboration and cooperation are in the spotlight as we experience the lack of a working Northern Ireland Executive. As a leading business organisation we are committed to delivering programmes and workshops that will equip women to continue to support and grow our local economy.”
Norman Fraser, Head of Business, Charles Hurst Jaguar Land Rover commented, “We are delighted to partner with Women in Business and embark on a two-year partnership with an organisation that encourages and empowers women to thrive and succeed in the workplace.”
“In recent years, we have seen an increase of females working within the automotive industry, an industry which has previously been stereotypically male dominated. With our new state-of-the-art dual brand showroom, the first of its kind in Northern Ireland, now open, Charles Hurst Jaguar Land Rover aims to continue building a gender-balanced working environment and encourage more females to apply for the various job roles available.”
“In the last five – ten years we have seen an influx of female customers visit our showroom. They are often the key decision maker in the vehicle purchasing process and we endeavour to continue creating an environment that is warm and inviting to everyone.”
Women in Business strives to encourage, empower and enlighten women and this partnership with a leading employer and business in Northern Ireland offers a collaboration of powerful thinking, attitudes and approaches which will positively impact on the lives of women across the province.
