“Today, we celebrate 10 phenomenal women in the collision repair industry who have made a difference with their commitment to excellence, mentoring other women and in their communities,” said Marie Peevy, president of Automotive Training Coordinators and a 2018 MIW honoree. “You are a great example to young girls and women that show anything is possible.”
WIN’s 2021 MIW recipients will be celebrated at a gala held during WIN’s 2021 Annual Conference, a virtual event scheduled for May 4-5, 2021.
The MIW award was established in 1999 to recognize women whose leadership, vision and commitment to excellence have enriched the collision repair industry. With the addition of this year’s MIW winners, over 100 women have been recognized for their contributions to the collision repair industry. Winners are chosen by a panel of past MIW honorees, who review nominees and select award recipients based on established criteria, such as industry influence, professional accomplishments, mentorship and community service.
