Raising awareness of women in the specialty-equipment industry is a top priority of the SEMA Businesswomen’s Network (SBN). As such, the network provides year-round networking, education, and recognition opportunities for professional women in the industry to help them excel in their careers and positively impact the growth of the automotive aftermarket. Listed below are three ways that SBN members can get involved and recognized.

The SBN is currently accepting applications for women to be featured in the #SheIsSEMA spotlight campaign to help raise awareness of career possibilities and spotlight successful women in the specialty equipment aftermarket. The #SheIsSEMA spotlight will feature how these women landed their careers and how they continue to thrive in a male-dominated industry.
