LKQ Corporation has announced that it will be sponsoring Women’s Industry Network for the first time in 2022 as a Platinum sponsor.
The Women’s Industry Network’s mission is to support and enhance the role of women in the collision repair industry, promoting education, professional advancement and networking. The all-volunteer group represents various collision industry segments including, but not limited to, repair facilities, suppliers, consultants, information providers and insurance companies.
“This partnership is the next step as LKQ continues to pursue relationships with organizations that enhance their commitment to creating an inclusive culture where all employees can thrive,” noted Genevieve Dombrowski, senior vice president of human resources.
WIN’s effort amplifies the message that the industry is continuing to value women in many different positions and embracing their ideas and importance to the market. Even with this progress, there is always room for improvement and WIN plays an important role in the overall structure of the collision repair industry.
Amanda Allen, director of employee experience, commented, “WIN is committed to DRIVING the future for women in collision repair and LKQ is committed to providing our women leaders an opportunity to connect, learn and grow with other leaders focused on improving retention for female employees and attracting more females to our industry.”
