What is #SheIsSEMA?

Who is She? In the Automotive Aftermarket She is many things, and sometimes it is something completely unexpected. The SEMA Businesswomen’s Network (SBN) is proud to answer that question with the #SheIsSEMA campaign designed to raise awareness of successful women in the industry. By featuring those women who have excelled in their career, we will raise awareness of talented women and the career possibilities for women in the future. Through the #SheIsSEMA campaign, the SBN features what these women do, how they landed their careers, and how they continue to thrive in this male-dominated industry via social media and SEMA eNews. By aiming to bridge the gap, the SBN is able inspire the next generation of women and create a culture of proud industry female colleagues.

#SheIsSEMA candidates are automatically eligible to be considered for SBN’s “#SheIsSEMA Woman of the Year” award presented at SBN’s reception during the annual SEMA Show.

#SheIsSEMA | All-Female Bronco Build

If you haven't already heard about the SBN All-Female Bronco build, well now you have. This year marks the 10-year anniversary of the first All-Female build that took place in 2012.

This past year, Ford Motor Co. supported the build again and supplied SBN with a 2021 Ford Bronco Wildtrak.

The build took place July - October 2022 at both SEMA Garage locations, Diamond Bar, CA and Detroit, MI with a final reveal at the 2022 SEMA Show.

Check out the amazing volunteers who made this possible.
