We are Driven Collective.
"We are passionate professionals.
Leaders, dreamers, mechanics and engineers.
We are business owners and account managers.
Content creators and multi-skilled collaborators".
What we do?
The Driven Collective was founded in 2019 to put females firmly above the parapet in the automotive sector, as it remains one of the most male-dominated industries. We aim to showcase female talent in the sector and provide support and opportunities to those who are overwhelmed and overlooked.
From car collectors to mechanics, engineers to salesmen, designers to racers, a female face is still a rarity.
Yet within the sector, there are some genuinely gifted females with all of the knowledge, expertise and enthusiasm of their peers, who are struggling to have a voice and be taken seriously.
Who are we?
We are a group from all walks of the motoring world: Engineers, Mechanics, Sales, Logistics, Photography, Brand Owners, Racing Drivers, Collectors, PR & Marketing, Journalists and Directors, who will commit to leading by example and support females along the way.
Our vision is that women be taken seriously in this sector and are recognised for the significant contribution they can make.
Our approach is to be inclusive and whilst focused on females as the unrepresented gender in the sector, it will not be to the exclusion of anyone who wants to be supported.
The support will be extended to anyone who needs advice on accessing things like training courses, jobs and events within the automotive industry.
