What is #SheIsSEMA?

Who embodies 'She' in the Automotive Aftermarket? She represents a multitude of roles, often surprising. The SEMA Businesswomen's Network (SBN) proudly addresses this question through the #SheIsSEMA campaign, aimed at spotlighting accomplished women in the industry. By showcasing their achievements, we seek to raise awareness of talented women and expand the spectrum of career opportunities for future generations. Through social media and SEMA eNews, the #SheIsSEMA campaign delves into the accomplishments, career trajectories, and ongoing success stories of these women in a traditionally male-dominated field. By fostering inclusivity and inspiration, SBN endeavors to nurture the growth of female talent and cultivate a community of empowered industry professionals. Nominees of #SheIsSEMA are automatically considered for the prestigious "Woman of the Year" award presented during SBN's reception at the annual SEMA Show.
