Mansfield & Ashfield 2020 together we mean business
International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. It is celebrated in many countries around the world and a day when women are recognized for their achievements without regard to divisions, whether national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic or political.
Rebecca Carter and Avril Rawson, from Pendragon's Learning and Development Team, delivered a workshop to ten Year 9 students on the theme of Women in the Workplace. The workshop began with a 'guess my job role' with the students successfully guessing that Rebecca is a 'trainer' by asking specific questions in search of the correct answer. Rebecca is one of five female Team Members working in the Learning & Development Team.
The Year 9's were divided into 3 teams of mixed abilities, each team supported by a member of the excellent team at The Beech Academy. Each team was provided with an iPad and asked to choose a Team Name deciding on; Superhero, The Dream Team and Klij, they then undertook an online multiple choice quiz around the theme of the automotive industry, with the Superhero team achieving a clear win - well done to all the Year 9's, what a fabulous achievement!
Rebecca and Avril then presented each of the students with a Certificate of Achievement and a Pendragon Training Academy notebook.
Pendragon's work within the local community is extensive, particularly with schools supporting their career ready and career pathway programmes.
Our work with The Beech Academy successfully links in with our recent pledge with the Time to Change Agenda and Pendragon plc's Wellbeing Agenda. Rebecca and Avril have been delighted to support The Beech Academy, demonstrating Pendragon's commitment to encourage women to look to the automotive industry when seeking successful career pathways. Pendragon embraces equality and diversity in the workplace and, on International Women's Day, we are delighted to share our video interviewing some of Pendragon's female Team Members who talk about their working life with Pendragon.
