More than 100 employees and guests of Price Family Dealerships gathered to celebrate International Women’s Day last week in San Rafael. The event was hosted by Price Family Women’s Circle, an employee-driven resource group committed to actively engaging women at all levels of the automotive sales and service company.
Savannah Simms, general manager at Volvo Cars Palo Alto, explained the history of the Women’s Circle and the gains the company has made with women in leadership positions.
A speaker’s panel moderated by Diana Kennedy, general manager of Volvo Marin, included Amber Alley, general manager of Barsotti’s Body and Fender; Kerri Wise, chief marketing officer, Auto Fi; and Ashlyn Murray, vice president of Client Service, Foundation Direct.
Topics included women in leadership roles, the importance of mentorship, and family-work balance.
“We started our Women’s Circle roughly three years ago and to see the number of attendees in the room on March 8 really commemorates our efforts,” Kennedy said. “We are completely energized and plan to carry this energy into 2023 to build on our efforts to grow our presence. I am so proud to work for the Price family because of their continuous belief and support in us.”
