In 1971 the U.S. Congress designated August 26 as “Women’s Equality Day,” commemorating the 1920 certification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, granting women the right to vote.
This Saturday marks the 46th Women’s Equality Day.
Over the last decade, our team has had the good fortune of recognizing the contribution, innovation, and leadership of women working in the remarketing and used-car business.
Auto Remarketing’s annual Women in Remarketing program, sponsored by Ally, honors leaders who are passionate about creating the future of automotive industry and empowering its people. This recognition of excellence also remarks on the progress women have made in influencing a more diverse cohort of leaders and decision-makers across all sectors of the business.
“My time spent as both an honoree and now moderator and active sponsor of the Women in Remarketing has been one of my proudest moments. I have not only learned from so many of the amazing women that have received this award, but I have made personal friendships through the fellowship with the honorees that will last a lifetime. I am a big believer in leaving the world a better place than you found it, and my personal and professional commitment to the Women in Remarketing helps me advance the agenda of creating gender equality in the automotive business. Diverse thinking breeds better business and we can’t stop until this idea is truly embraced.”
— Andrea Riley, Chief Marketing and Public Relations Officer, Ally
