Toronto, Ontario — The Women’s Industry Network (WIN) is now accepting nominations for its “Most Influential Women” (MIW) awards, which recognize those working within any sector of the U.S. and Canadian collision repair industry.

Nominations for the awards opened on Wednesday and will be accepted through January 5, 2024.

Jenny Anderson, committee member of the WIN MIW and past chair of the WIN board, said the awards were established in 1999 to spotlight those whose “leadership, vision and commitment to excellence have enriched the collision repair industry.”

To date, 115 women have received awards through WIN. This year, winners will be recognized May 6 to the 8th, 2024 during the WIN Educational Conference in Newport Beach, California.

WIN acquired stewardship of the MIW program in 2013 and said it is working to evolve it to align with its mission of “driving the future of collision repair by attracting, developing, and advancing women.”

“Through their dedication to excellence, commitment to community, and investment in the future through their willingness to mentor other women, our ‘Most Influential Women’ recipients have made a huge impact on the collision repair industry,” said Rachel Hinson, MIW committee chair.

“These industry professionals serve as shining examples of the array of opportunities that are available in collision repair, as well as testaments to the positive impact that women can have in this and all other fields.”

In 2023, MIW recipients included: Traci Calkins, regional sales manager at PPG; April Lausch, Faulkner Collision Center of Lancaster’s collision center manager; Lakeitria Luter, Service King/Crash Champions director; Yohanna Peet, Caliber Collision’s training program manager; and Jaime Shewbridge, an I-CAR welding instructor.
