Women in Industry

Our Mission:

To inspire and draw women into the equipment dealer industry by offering resources and a network that foster professional success while furthering the mission of the EDA.


The EDA Women in Industry Founders Group, a group of women in c-level, general manager and dealer principal positions from EDA membership, have been meeting monthly since September of 2020. During their video conference calls, the founder’s group discusses common business issues relating to women and the industry in general and discuss how to attract more women into the industry and ensure their success.

The founder’s WII group will be the springboard for a novel mentoring program for women at all levels in a dealer organization starting in 2022.  Similar programs have been extremely successful all over North America.

There is no additional charge for dealership members to participate.
