Conway, S.C. – Colors on Parade is happy to offer the WIA Franchise Scholarship for the second year in a row at the summer Women In Automotive Conference this month.

According to 2014 NADA data, the current percentage of female automotive employees remains stagnant at just 17 percent, with the smallest portion of this statistic being women in autobody. The Colors On Parade/ Women In Automotive Scholarship was created in order to support women in becoming leaders, entrepreneurs and business owners within the automotive industry. Specifically, Colors On Parade hopes to encourage growth for women in automotive paint and dent repair. By training female leaders and establishing them as business owners in this industry, Colors On Parade hopes to open many more doors for other women looking to establish themselves. Colors On Parade is excited to be involved with the Women In Automotive movement, and will continue to contribute to the growing number of women in the industry.

Applications for the Colors On Parade/ Women In Automotive scholarship will be collected beginning June 20- September 1st. Chosen applicants will be awarded a Colors On Parade Franchise valued at $5,000. Included in the franchise is two weeks of intensive training and business training at the corporate office in South Carolina, and a three-month paid apprenticeship working in the field. Once training is complete, winners will have an opportunity to open their franchise in one of Colors On Parade’s 52 territories across the United States. Applicants are encouraged to apply online at colorsonparade.com/wiascholarship.

“As charter members of WIA we are thrilled to attend our fifth conference. This scholarship opportunity offers one more outlet for women to succeed in the automotive industry” said Ray Harcum, National Sales Director for Colors on Parade.

On June 23-25 2019, nine members representing Colors On Parade will be attending the fifth annual Women In Automotive (WIA) Summer Conference at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort in Orlando, Florida. Jessica Billinglsey, Colors On Parade’s newest and third ever female franchisee from Fayetteville, Arkansas will be attending along with her husband and COP Area Developer Daniel Billingsley for her first inaugural conference experience. Amanda Silvernail, one of Colors On Parade’s other newest female franchisees from Alabama will also be in attendance, along with Melanie Canuto, another franchisee from Neptune Beach, Florida. Alyssa Baxley and Josh Baxley- Area Developers from the Birmingham, Alabama territory will also be in attendance. Colors On Parade’s National Director of Sales, Ray Harcum and Lee Moody, COP’s Technical Development Coordinator along with his wife Joy Moody will also be in attendance representing the corporate office.

The Women in Automotive conference educational content fulfills a gap in the automotive community. The goal is to move the automotive industry forward as it relates to the most influential segment of the market: women. The focus of the 2019 conference will be: “Innovation, What’s Next?”

The agenda for WIA’s June Conference includes workshops and presentations from industry leaders, keynote awards, scholarship overviews, as well as several networking opportunities. Workshops will focus on a variety of topics ranging from growing your career, connecting the generations, how men and women differ in their car shopping approach, strategic imperatives for hiring, retention and career growth, and inclusion and empowerment.

With more than 30 years of experience and 250 operating franchises across the U.S., Colors on Parade is consistently ranked by Entrepreneur magazine as one of the nation’s top automobile franchise systems. The company’s extensive training and certification process allows new franchisees to provide customer services safely onsite while using a specialized process.
