Leesburg, Virginia — April 3, 2014 — The Womenâ€™s Industry Network (WIN) is committed to continuing its mission of engaging women in the collision repair industry. However, WIN depends upon the support and generosity of individuals and organizations in the industry to do so.
â€œThe importance of WINâ€™s mission to our industry is reaffirmed by the tremendous support we have received from our sponsors,â€ said Susanna Gotsch, chair of the Sponsorship Committee. â€œThese sponsorships played a key role in our ability to expand our scholarship program in 2014, and extend our reach through programs such as the Thereâ€™s A Place For You recruiting poster distributed to over 1100 technical schools and colleges by Collision Repair Education Foundation. We are extremely grateful for our sponsorsâ€™ support.â€
According to WIN, sponsors support the organization because it provides a unique industry setting where women can connect with peers in the industry to share different perspectives, challenges, and ideas to improve the industry. WIN offers educational opportunities that recognize the unique roles women play in this industry, and supports their career development.
