An early supporter of the Women’s Industry Network (WIN) as a founding sponsor, Enterprise is now a platinum sponsor of the organization and boasts 11 WIN members supporting various WIN committees from within its organization.
Enterprise’s sponsorship helps WIN in its mission to promote and mentor women in this industry and bring awareness that they are vital contributors to the workforce. As a platinum sponsor, Enterprise supports many WIN initiatives, including scholarships, mentoring programs, regional events, and the annual educational conference. There, hundreds of collision repair, insurance, technology, and other industry professionals connect and develop their professional skillsets.
The Enterprise sponsorship also supports WIN’s Most Influential Women (MIW) award, which recognizes women who have enriched the collision repair industry with their leadership, vision, and commitment to excellence. Honorees hold positions in every facet of the industry: shop owners, painters, body technicians, managers, wholesalers, lobbyists, suppliers, insurance adjusters, consultants, educators, editors and writers, and industry association directors. Enterprise Vice President of insurance replacement Mary Mahoney was recognized with the MIW award in 2018 for her work in the industry.
Jenny Anderson, Director of Sales for Entegral — an integrated software solution powered by Enterprise – has been on the WIN board for five years and has been a member of the WIN executive committee for four years. She was first introduced to the organization through an industry mentor. Anderson is thankful for the connections she has made, the experiences she has had with the organization, and the ability to have a small impact on females in the industry.
Enterprise has a long history of prioritizing diversity and supporting women. With locations in thousands of communities throughout the world, Enterprise makes it a point to hire locally and ensure its workforce represents the diversity of the communities in which it does business.
Additionally, the company’s Supplier Diversity Policy is intended to help facilitate an increase in the number of minority-owned, women-owned, and other socially or economically disadvantaged small businesses that work to supply goods and services for the company.
Enterprise Holdings’ President and CEO Chrissy Taylor is one of the highest-ranking women in the global travel industry and one of the top female CEOs across all industries.
“We’ve launched a new global program – My purpose. My time. – that will provide our employees with paid time off so they can personally volunteer and serve local community causes that are most important to them,” Taylor said in a statement. “We’re also enhancing our Open Minds | Open Doors diversity and inclusion curriculum that is incorporated into every step of career development at Enterprise Holdings. We’re creating more focus on topics impacting our colleagues, and more tangible solutions and training on how best to address critical conversations, inclusive leadership and unconscious bias.”
