About the Event

#SHEDRIVESWiP2021

Passion – People – Progress – Porsche

Since Women in Porsche, Inc.’s inception, it has been the dream of our Founder (Laurina Esposito) to be able to create events that would bring women together in their shared pursuit of passions for the automotive and Porsche specific worlds; In a safe environment that would encourage the ability to share their industry-related knowledge and expertise (both traditional and not) these WiP Sponsored events would seek to be a catalyst for breaking down the barriers that currently inhibit women involved in the automotive world from being revered as equals among their male counterpoints and peers. By surrounding one another with like-minded people, in one central location- through speakers, gatherings, and educational experiences, we aim to prove to the world that #WomenCanToo! Now, after nearly three (3) years of cultivation and impassioned efforts, we are thrilled to announce the first official Annual WiP “SHE DRIVES” retreat!

SHE DRIVES 2021, held in historic Downtown Los Angeles, CA, will offer our Chapter Leaders and members an exciting weekend filled with personalized events, gatherings, and camaraderie. Surrounding attendance at the prestigious LA Auto Show and anchored by the first “WiP Presents” speaking engagement, boasting speakers who truly inspire and motivate all to continue in their pursuit of the passions that aim to normalize women in the automotive industry, SHE DRIVES 2021 is truly an event that is not to be missed!
