The Women's Industry Network is still accepting nominations for the prestigious "Most Influential Women Awards" through Dec. 31. The awards recognize women who have enriched the collision repair industry with their leadership, vision and commitment to excellence.
The program's charter aligns with WIN’s mission to “enhance the role of women in the industry” and has recognized more than 75 women for their professional accomplishments and for going beyond requirements of their positions to give back to their communities. More than 30 percent of MIW recipients are currently, or have previously been members of WIN.
Honorees have held positions in every facet of the collision repair industry, as shop owners, body and paint technicians, managers, wholesalers, lobbyists, suppliers, insurance adjusters, consultants, educators, editors and writers, and industry association directors.
Established in 1999 by Akzo Nobel, WIN acquired the management of the MIW program in 2013, the Most Influential Women program has supported the industry by funding scholarships for prospective female students interested in pursuing a career in collision repair.
Winners will be recognized at a gala during the 2014 WIN Educational Conference May 5-7, 2014, at Paradise Point in San Diego. Download a nomination form and learn more about the program at http://thewomensindustrynetwork.ning.com/page/nominations-and-criteria-4.
