What is the Women Making Waves Program?
Entering its sixth year in 2023, Boating Industry’s Women Making Waves program recognizes a multitude of women in the recreational boating industry who have made and continue to make great contributions to its success, propel its growth and lead their organizations and peers into the future.
Each year, Boating Industry has received an increasing amount of nominations — with more than one hundred nominations for the 2021 program — from individuals across all segments of the industry vying to support and shine a spotlight on female leaders across the board.
Once the nomination process closes, the editorial team at Boating Industry reads through every submission and eventually selects around 25 finalists, made up of women from all segments of the industry from retailers to manufacturers and everything in between, to represent that year’s Women Making Waves.
Who are the Women Making Waves recipients?
The Women Making Waves honorees are made up of women leaders across the entire recreational boating industry. From the executive level of manufacturers, associations, and dealerships to every other aspect of the industry, this group of women continuously strives to better their organizations and the industry as a whole.
