WINConnect Program Expands in Second Year
Designed to increase networking and career building opportunities among its members, the WINConnect program is one of the key initiatives for WIN in 2022-23. WINConnect is available exclusively to WIN members interested in expanding their professional capabilities and knowledge. Participants of the WINConnect program will gather virtually in monthly cohort sessions, where they will be able to network and learn throughout the year. Sessions will include a mix of small group check-ins along with professional and career development sessions led by coaching experts.
“This initiative will enable WIN members to connect regularly, share experiences and further develop industry talent,” said Susie Frausto, vice chair of WIN. “Working with professional business coaches is important for women who are looking to excel in the collision repair industry.”
The second chapter of the WINConnect program will run from July 2022 to May 2023 with its carefully selected cohorts meeting every other month.
WIN is making a strategic investment to fund much of program’s facilitation expenses, though there is a small financial commitment ($100) that is in addition to the WIN membership fee. Accommodations are available for WIN members in need of additional financial assistance.
In brief, the WINConnect initiative will further service WIN members by:
- Making consistent and meaningful connections among women in the industry
- Sharing experiences and learning from others in an authentic, confidential environment
- Building key business skills and acumen applicable across industry segment and experience level
- Developing and strengthening a professional support network
