women in auto producing honda civic courtenay bcYou might have missed it, but back in March, the Canadian Leadership Forum sponsored another great conference on the topic of Women & Automotive. A number of top executives from Honda and organizations like Canada Drives were in attendance. In fact, one of the four keynote speakers was Ali Woodley, Plant 1 Manager for the country’s manufacturing.

As the conference organizers explained, Woodley and the other leaders present 
showcase the best that the auto industry has to offer. Hard work and dedication to cars and to the advancement of women is something to be recognized, and the keynote speakers exhibited these qualities in spades.

Ali Woodley has over 30 years’ experience with Honda of Canada Manufacturing. She has risen up the ranks to one of the most coveted positions in the company, that of Plant 1 Manager. Beginning in 1986 in the paint department, she has since assumed a variety of leadership roles.

According to an article by CBC, Ali Woodley’s plant produces a whopping 820 Honda Civics a day. She oversees paint, welding, and assembly. That’s impressive stuff!
