Keyloop’s commitment to diversity shines at automotive 30% club conference

Automotive 30% club conference highlights

We’re delighted to share the highlights from Keyloop’s participation in the annual Automotive 30% Club conference, which recently took place in the heart of London. As proud sponsors of the event for the second consecutive year, Keyloop showcased the significant progress made through its Power to Change program in increasing female representation within the organisation.

With a focus on fostering diversity and inclusion across various dimensions, Keyloop demonstrated its commitment to creating an equitable and inclusive workplace where everyone can thrive.

Empowering change

At the conference, Tom Kilroy, Keyloop CEO, presented the remarkable strides the organisation has made in the past 12 months in elevating female representation throughout the business. Keyloop has actively pursued gender balance at all levels, and its efforts have yielded impressive results.
At the executive leadership team (ELT) level, Keyloop now boasts a 45% female representation, which rises to 50% when excluding Tom. Furthermore, within the senior leadership team (SLT), female representation has increased by 16%, reaching an impressive 36%.

We truly believe our long-term partnership with the Automotive 30% Club is of the upmost importance. As both a Patron and the Partner Sponsor this year, I’m excited to work on initiatives that will increase female employment, build a larger pipeline of talented women and contribute to closing the gender gap which exists in our industry.

Driving progress through diversity

Keyloop’s commitment to diversity goes beyond gender representation. The conference emphasised that embracing a diverse workforce, encompassing age, background, ethnicity, working style, sexual orientation, disability, and more, is crucial for driving the organisation forward. Keyloop recognises that diverse perspectives and experiences bring fresh ideas, innovation, and creativity to the table.

By actively championing inclusivity and equity, Keyloop positions itself as an organisation that values and respects the uniqueness of every individual within its workforce.

Creating an inclusive employee experience

Attracting and retaining top talent requires creating an employee experience that values individuals holistically. One of the ways Keyloop has fostered inclusivity is by altering its recruitment language to attract a diverse pool of candidates. Additionally, it has been amplifying voices from across the company, showcasing the diverse perspectives and achievements of its employees. By doing so, Keyloop creates an environment where employees feel seen, heard, and valued.

We recognise the importance of promoting work-life balance and ensuring that the employee experience extends beyond the confines of work. By prioritising the well-being and personal fulfilment of our people, Keyloop demonstrates its commitment to supporting individuals both professionally and personally.
