As an active SEMA member volunteer and vice president of Exports International, Rose Kawasaki is a name in which many in the industry are familiar. However, few may realize the powerhouse and the journey that led her to a 30-plus-year thriving career in the automotive specialty-equipment industry. Join the SEMA Businesswomen’s Network (SBN) in a Facebook Live Chat featuring Kawasaki, September 2, at 12:00 p.m. (PDT).
A former SBN chair, Kawasaki has advocated for the industry and volunteered endless hours to help promote programs that benefit and mentor young women entering the industry. Her dedication to the success and growth of SBN—including her leadership as Vehicle Build Task Force Chair in the groundbreaking “SEMA Mustang Build Powered by Women” in 2012—earned her recognition as SBN’s Athena Woman of the Year in 2015.
During this live chat, Kawasaki will share personal stories and discuss ways SBN members can activate their membership benefits and get involved, even through this time of social distancing.
Get your questions ready and tune into the SBN Facebook Page on September 2.
