United States. The SEMA Women Entrepreneurs Network (SBN), a network of subsets of the Special Equipment Market Association that supports and raises awareness about women in the automotive industry, celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2023.
The network, which encourages and supports women seeking careers in the automotive field, represents more than 700 female and male members in various occupations and markets in the aftermarket industry.
To celebrate the milestone, SBN says it launched a campaign to highlight network members' stories through SEMA and SBN's communication channels.
The campaign will run throughout 2023 and culminate in SBN's 30th anniversary reception and party at the SEMA Show in November.
Since 1993, SBN has developed and administered industry-focused programs for women, including networking and recognition opportunities.
Most recently, it completed construction of its second women-only vehicle, hosted its second annual Women's Leadership Forum, and continues to highlight the stories and careers of women in the automotive industry through its #SheIsSEMA campaign.
"SBN's story is one of ambition and progress, and we couldn't be more excited for the community we've created," said SBN Director Nicole Bradle.
"It's a network where all women are recognized and supported for their contributions to this thriving industry," she said.
