It's no secret that the auto industry is male-dominated, but we've often wondered how that gender imbalance affects women's careers.
We figured it's time to take a serious look at sexism in the auto industry. Automotive News teamed up with the researchers from a project called Elephant in the Valley, which surveyed women in Silicon Valley to find out how gender issues have affected their work.
So, women in automotive: We'd like to hear about what you have experienced.
"What we realized is that while many women shared similar workplace stories, most men were simply shocked and unaware of the issues facing women in the workplace," the Elephant in the Valley survey authors wrote. "In an effort to correct the massive information disparity, we decided to get the data on the stories."
We're looking for data, too, but we also want personal stories. Our survey is anonymous, but there is a link at the end to share contact information if you're willing to talk to a reporter.
We encourage you to take the survey at autonews.com/womeninautosurvey. It will be 20 minutes well spent.
