The MIW program was established in 1999 by AkzoNobel as an industry honorarium. The goal of the program was to promote the contributions and grow the future involvement of a valuable resource pool for the collision repair industry. The MIW program collaborates with the I-CAR Education Foundation to provide scholarships to deserving women seeking to advance their education and pursue career opportunities within the collision repair industry.


The 2009 MIW honorees will be recognized at a special awards gala in April 2010. The by-invitation-only event will be hosted by AkzoNobel in Atlanta, Ga., the corporate headquarters for AkzoNobel Car Refinishes Americas.
