    OUR MISSION
    To advance and empower women in the automotive industry.

    JOIN OUR VISION
    Help create and sustain a diverse automotive industry, optimized by empowered women.

    EVOLVING AND ACCELERATING
    By the year end of 2017, AWAF has awarded $379,500 in scholarships to 153 women pursuing careers in the automotive and mobility industry.

    We are more than 200 members from all areas of the industry, at all career levels, working to support each other and other women through fundraising for scholarships and opportunities for professional development.

    Proceeds from events, including our flagship annual golf outing, are used to provide scholarships to women who are studying to enter or further their career in the automotive field.

    We welcome new members and sponsors to accelerate our mission and vision! Get to know us through our events:  social and informative functions such as Pumps and Power in the fall, intimate members-only executive fireside chats throughout the year, professional development programs and the annual August golf outing.
