Woman And Machine is an automotive educational company geared towards community development for female automotive enthusiasts. The event presents automotive based classes/demonstrations, a car/motorcycle show, vendors to purchase goods from, and plenty of time to network with teachers, women in similar roles, and female leaders within the industry.
The event is designed to develop a community and space for women interested in automotive and those already in the industry to learn and encourage more ladies to potentially look at automotive as a career path, have automotive become a hobby or give them knowledge to go into a repair shop/dealership and not feel intimidated. For this reason, classes and demos must be automotive related or be able to be applied to the automotive field (i.e. welding, basic car care, auto body, automotive painting, and so on).
Teacher acceptance is conditional until the terms and deadlines as outlined in this application are met. If terms or deadlines are not met or broken, we reserve the right to replace your class to keep with the timeline and efficiency of building and holding an event.
We may edit some of your class information such as title, description and bio for brevity and marketing and promotional purposes. Upon acceptance, please review your class information on our website carefully and adjust, plan and revise your presentation and supporting materials accordingly.
We look forward to receiving your submission.
