The SEMA Businesswomen’s Network (SBN) held a Gear-up Girl Networking Event at NASCAR Technical Institute (NTI) on September 12 for female students and professionals. A female only event, SBN Gear-up Girl is a unique networking opportunity for women in the automotive/motorsports professionals’ industry to connect with female students pursuing careers in the automotive and motorsports industry. The event was designed to:
• Help female students gain a broad understanding of opportunities in the industry
• Help female students identify their interests and how those might connect with specific niche market segments and/or companies in the industry
- Provide an opportunity for women automotive professionals to strengthen their network
With many schools around the country hearing about the success of this event, the SBN and SEMA Education have recieved multiple schools reaching out to host a Gear Up Girl of their own. The Network is excited to see so many female students looking to make an impact in the aftermarket industry.
