The SEH program offers free training to people who lack the financial resources but have the desire to begin and develop careers as technicians in order to empower women in the automotive industry.

Due to the well-known male predominance of the automotive industry, this action became necessary. Despite advancements over time, there still has to be more proactive action taken to enhance the presence of women in the business due to the gender gap.

She said, “Women are hardworking and resilient and can add as much value as their male counterparts. The problem is that most times they do not have the channels to perform, but once given a platform, they own it. They do it in the way they can because men and women are different.”
