We've had over 30 nominations for our Leading Women in Collision programme, sponsored by IAG.
Don't forget we have a female tradesperson/estimator category. So far we only have two nominations in this category. Surprisingly these are for panel beaters rather than spray painters or estimators given that we haven't encounters many female panel beaters. Nominations so far are for Leah Adamthwaite a panel beater from K&E.S Adamthwaite Crash Repairs in NSW and Perlita Puruto, apprentice panel beater at Workhorse Collision Repairs also in NSW.
Are there no impressive women in other states working at the pointy end of the trade? We know there are, so get nominating folks. We've had two spray painting finalists in the past, Lauren Neil from David Hand Smash in ACT and Samantha Leonard from Forbes Smash in country NSW - and we know there are plenty of women preparing estimates around the country.
We also haven't had an nominations for parts managers and yet I've heard shop owners up and down the country praise their female parts managers - so get nominating.
