Help us identify powerful women in the auto industry.

Every five years since 2000, Automotive News has published the list of 100 Leading Women in the North American Auto Industry. Next fall, we’ll do it again.

On Nov. 9, 2020, Automotive News will profile those executives in a special section and video reports. The project is being done in conjunction with Deloitte.

Candidates for the Leading Women list must be in a senior position of substantial responsibility and have had a major positive effect on their company’s operations.

The list of leading women mainly will comprise women in engineering, manufacturing, purchasing, new mobility, finance and marketing at automakers and suppliers. Auto dealership and service provider executives (generally with the title of vice president and above) also will be in the mix.

Previous honorees remain eligible.

To nominate yourself or someone else, fill out the simple registration form. One nomination for each candidate is all we need. We will select the strongest candidates from the pool of nominees and ask them to complete our candidate information form.

Thanks for your help shining a spotlight on the auto industry’s top female leaders.

The deadline to submit nominations is Friday, Feb. 28.
