NEW REPORT – Driving diversity, equity & inclusion in the UK automotive industry

8 Sep 2022

The Automotive Council’s first report into diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) in the UK automotive industry, developed by the UK Competitiveness, Business and Environment Group’s DE&I Workstream, is today published. DE&I is an issue of competitiveness and a vital matter for a sector with critical skills gaps that is reliant upon attracting talent, often in competition with other sectors, globally. While many automotive companies have programmes that are helping, there is a huge amount still to be done if the industry is to be reflective of its customers and the society it serves.

Given the broad DE&I remit, this initial report focuses on women in the industry, understanding that within this workforce there are many diversity strands such as age, disability, ethnicity, neurodiversity, race, social mobility and sexual orientation. It is the aim of the DE&I Working Group to address the under representation of all minority groups in future reports.
