Women are at the Center of Production and R&D in GÜNSEL!

The weight of women in the Automotive Sector will increase with the electric car revolution. GÜNSEL is a good example of giving clues to this transformation.

Although automotive is perceived as a male-dominated sector, this situation will change drastically in the near future with the transformation of electric cars. The electric car production sector will provide women with opportunities to find more space for themselves in the automotive industry as technology and software-intensive initiatives. GÜNSEL, the domestic car of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, is a good example to see this transformation.

GUNSEL’s Power: Women
GÜNSEL, which develops and produces electric cars from the very beginning of the production process, is also a technology company compared to conventional automotive companies. As the software and applications stand out as the main components of 100% electric cars, electric car manufacturers such as GÜNSEL are planning to transform into one of the most important service companies of the future not only because of their production style but also with a business model based on “mobility” which is one of the rising concepts of our age. For this reason, women taking place in GÜNSEL production facilities are not only in charge of traditional departments such as human resources or corporate communication but take place at the center of direct production and R&D.

About one-third of GÜNSEL employees are women. As designers, industrial design engineers, procurement engineers, project engineers, automotive engineers, mechanical engineers, composite engineers, cabling engineers, women take responsibility in many different units of GÜNSEL, from R&D to production. Women who work as project managers and team leaders during the development and production stages of GÜNSEL have a significant contribution to this sector. With the transformation, women will be more visible throughout the automotive industry!

Tuba Güven Zurnacı: “We aim to increase women’s employment in GÜNSEL”
Tuba Güven Zurnacı, Founding Executive Board Member of GÜNSEL, says that electric car companies will be among the companies with the highest female employment rate. Emphasizing that women lead each unit of GÜNSEL by taking responsibility, Zurnacı said, “We will continue to increase the employment of women in GÜNSEL. GÜNSEL’s doors are wide open to women who want to change the future.”

Speaking with her 7-month-old baby in her arms, Tuba Güven Zurnacı said, “GÜNSEL is an exemplary company where you can climb the career ladder without compromising your womanhood and motherhood. The increase in the number of such companies will also pave the way for women to be better represented in the business world.” Celebrating the day of her female colleagues and all women from GÜNSEL, Zurnacı wished; “I wish a future that women will come to the agenda with their achievements, not with the violence they become subject to.”
