Ford Motor Co. and the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) teamed up to present the SEMA Mustang Build Powered by Women. Under the direction of the SEMA Businesswomen’s Network (SBN) and built entirely by SBN members, the project is designed to shine the light on women working in the automotive aftermarket and encourage more women to pursue careers in the industry. The vehicle will be auctioned with proceeds going towards the SEMA Memorial Scholarship Fund to help foster our next generation of industry leaders.
SEMA Businesswoman's Network
Last year, the SEMA Businesswomen’s Network (SBN) Select Committee won the Pinewood Drag Races Council Cup with an unprecedented victory during the SEMA Leadership Days
in Pasadena, California. This year, they’re coming back for more with
yet another winning design to beat the competition in true SBN style.
When this industry began more than 75 years ago, the men were racing ’32 roadsters across the dry lakes of Southern California while the women were racing around the house, making sure they had a clean place to live and food on the table. Today, women are as much a part of this industry as the men, with roles that include driving race cars, managing businesses, building project vehicles and more.
