Endeavor Business Media’s Vehicle Repair Group, a dedicated supporter of diversity and empowerment within the automotive industry, proudly announces its recent sponsorship of Women in Auto Care with a bronze sponsorship of the program. The contribution underscores the Vehicle Repair Group’s commitment to fostering inclusivity and recognizing the invaluable contributions of women in an industry traditionally dominated by men.
"We’re thrilled to support Women in Auto Care and their mission of engaging, educating, and empowering women within the auto care industry," stated Chris Messer, Vice President and Group Publisher of the Vehicle Repair Group at Endeavor Business Media. "Women have played an integral role in the industry, utilizing their unique skill sets and dedication to drive positive change and innovation."
Despite representing only 10 percent of the auto care industry, women have showcased exceptional talents, including their attention to detail, empathy, emotional intelligence, and needs-based problem-solving abilities. This donation highlights the importance of recognizing and celebrating their vital role in an industry that has historically been male-dominated.
“Women in Auto Care is dedicated to its mission of engaging, educating, and empowering women within the auto care industry," said Missy Stephens, Community Engagement Manager with the Auto Care Association. "Through the invaluable support of our wonderful sponsors, Women in Auto Care has achieved significant milestones, having awarded more than $1.5 million in scholarships and tool kits to empower and uplift women entering our industry. These investments contribute not only to individual success stories but also to the overall growth and diversity of the auto care landscape. At Women in Auto Care, we go beyond traditional boundaries by hosting a variety of both in-person and virtual events throughout the year. These gatherings serve as platforms for networking, professional development, and fostering career leadership. By facilitating these opportunities, we aim to create an inclusive environment that propels women forward in their careers, ensuring they have the resources and connections necessary to thrive.”
