Since 1999, the Most Influential Women awards have recognized women who have enriched the collision repair industry with their leadership, vision, and commitment to excellence. WIN acquired the management of the MIW program in 2013. The program's charter aligns with WIN’s mission to “enhance the role of women in the industry” and has recognized over 80 women for their professional accomplishments and for going beyond requirements of their positions to give back to their communities.
Honorees have held positions in every facet of the collision repair industry, as shop owners, body and paint technicians, managers, wholesalers, lobbyists, suppliers, insurance adjusters, consultants, educators, editors and writers, and industry association directors.
This year's four Honorees were celebrated during WIN's Conference Gala on May 8, 2018.
