The Women’s Industry Network (WIN) announced that nominations for the Most Influential Women awards will be open from Nov. 1 through Jan. 15.
The winners will be recognized at a gala held during the 2018 WIN Educational Conference, scheduled for May 7-9, 2018, in Indianapolis. Nominations of women working in any segment of the collision repair industry across the United States and Canada are welcomed.
As in years past, WIN has retained an independent consultant to interview those who have been nominated for the award and select the winners, so that WIN can remain unbiased in the selection process.
“The MIW winners represent an amazing group of women who not only excel in their careers and community, but still find a successful balance by putting their families first,” said Marie Peevy, co-chair of the Most Influential Women awards and owner of Automotive Training Coordinators.
The Most Influential Women program has recognized 88 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 2018 nomination form can be found on the WIN website.
