The Women’s Industry Network (WIN) announced nominations for the Most Influential Women Awards opened on Nov. 2nd. The deadline for all nominations is Dec. 31st. The winners will be recognized at a Most Influential Women gala held during the 2016 WIN Educational Conference, May 2-4, 2016 at the Hilton Tampa Downtown in Tampa, Fla. Nominations of women working in any segment of the collision repair industry across the U.S. and Canada are welcomed, and WIN membership is not a requirement.
Established in 1999 by AkzoNobel, the Most Influential Women program has recognized 85 women who have enriched the collision repair industry with their leadership, vision and commitment to excellence. WIN acquired stewardship of the Most Influential Women program in 2013 and continues to evolve the program to align with WIN’s mission to “enhance the role of women in the industry.” The award recognizes women for their leadership in four areas: industry influence; professional accomplishments; mentoring and support for others in the collision repair industry; and for going beyond the requirements of their professional lives to give back to their communities. The 2016 nomination form can be downloaded from the WIN website.
