When asked what she would do differently in her career if she could go back in time, Sitek shared, “My biggest regret is to not have lived outside of the USA. My career never took me overseas. I feel that if I would have had a chance to see the world earlier, this would have made a difference. There is something important that takes place when you get to see how other nations function. There is a sense of true appreciation that is born.”

 

AWAF also held its First Annual Awards Ceremony during the 2019 Holiday Affair. Maureen LaFontaine was posthumously honored for her contributions to the automotive industry with the Industry Achievement Award which honors a woman who has made an outstanding contribution to the industry for at least ten years while promoting and supporting her fellow women to achieve their automotive career aspirations.

 

The Emerging Leader Award, which recognizes a woman who has been in her career for ten years or less and has demonstrated outstanding performance and leadership, was bestowed upon Sara Mohon. Dr. Craig J. Hoff, P.E. received the Change Champion Award which honors a man or company who has significantly contributed to the acceptance and advancement of women in the automotive industry.

 

Art Leaders Gallery donated 10 percent of their proceeds from the evening to AWAF’s Scholarship Fund. For more information about AWAF, visit awafoundation.org.
