By automotive-mag.com 2 Min Read

Bentley Motors has launched its third Extraordinary Women mentorship programme which will see eight students from the UK and Qatar selected for one-on-one mentorship and a week-long visit to Bentley’s headquarters in Crewe, England in June.

The programme focuses on female students in the fields of engineering, design, technology, and business. It was developed to encourage women to consider various career paths in the STEM and automotive sectors.

Karen Lange, Bentley’s board member for Human Resources, said: “It is a source of pride and inspiration to everyone within Bentley to see the Extraordinary Women programme going from strength to strength, as it enters its third year and expands to a fourth country.

“Our aim for this extraordinary initiative has been to build a legacy for young women and support the success of the next generation of future leaders, and with past participants progressing to undertake placements with Bentley, we are already witnessing the positive impact it is having.”

The Extraordinary Women mentorship programme is organised alongside the University of Bath, Loughborough, Warwick and Manchester Metropolitan in the UK and the University of Doha for Science in Technology in Qatar.

The mentorship programme is a part of Bentley’s Beyond100 strategy which focuses on the importance of diversity and inclusion.
