Leesburg, Virginia — June 1, 2016 — The Women’s Industry Network (WIN) 2016 Educational Conference celebrated the tenth anniversary of WIN’s formation with the theme “Power of the Past-Force of the Future.” In recognition of this milestone, AkzoNobel presented WIN with a $12,500 “WIN Technology Initiative Founder’s Sponsorship”

This sponsorship recognizes AkzoNobel’s “Power of the Past” – specifically its significant amount of investment in both cash and in-kind contributions in the formative years of WIN and “Force of the Future” – to support a new initiative critical to WIN’s continued sustainability. As a method of ensuring that WIN is able to sustain and grow its mission of engaging women in the collision repair industry, AkzoNobel has provided the initial investment required to enable the organization to achieve one of its key strategic initiatives for 2016, moving the organization to a technology platform that can support all of its current and future needs.

Jennifer Solcz, Marketing Manager for AkzoNobel Vehicle Refinishes in North America presented the funds to the organization and noted the significance of WIN.

“This resource delivers a method of networking and education at multiple levels which enables sustainable growth for those that actively choose to participate and for those yet to come,” she said.

Petra Schroeder is the recently elected Chair of WIN and accepted the sponsorship from AkzoNobel on behalf of the organization.

“We are extremely grateful to AkzoNobel. With this wonderful sponsorship, they have provided WIN with the opportunity to grow, and further support diversity and sustainability in our industry through engagement of women in the collision repair industry,” said Schroeder.

In the future, a “WIN Technology Sponsorship” will be established as an opportunity for other organizations and/or individuals to support WIN’s ongoing technology needs.
