Carvana, an industry pioneer for buying and selling used cars online, celebrates influential individuals across the company through a new digital series highlighting women’s perspectives, insights and professional experiences at Carvana. “Writing Our Own HER-Story” reflects how Carvana is helping break down barriers and pave the way for women in the automotive and tech industries.
“In transforming the way people buy and sell cars online, Carvana is focused on meaningful industry change while also walking the talk by showing we are better together,” says Adrienne Sanford, Carvana People Operations Vice President. “Writing Our Own HER-Story is just one example, yet an opportunity to more widely share some of the special stories of colleagues who have inspired their team members along the way.”
The “Writing Our Own HER-Story” series was inspired by Carvana’s Women’s Advocacy Community Group, EmpowHER, that collected internal nominations from fellow colleagues over several weeks leading up to Women’s History Month. The result is a unique collection of insights and advice for others as shown here.
EmpowHER supports women’s advocacy at Carvana all year long through specific resources for education and connection. As meaningful community extensions, CarMAMA is focused on supporting expectant and new mothers, and Women in Tech (WIT) fosters fulfilling career opportunities for those focused in the space. As an example, Carvana created Lane Change, a rotational program for employees to explore other areas of the business and discover new avenues and potential career moves across departments. In 2022, Carvana was recognized by Forbes as one of America’s Best Employers for Women, reinforcing its commitment to a diverse workplace that is dedicated to treating people better and creating great customer experiences.
