Urban Wheel Awards Presented to Females Within the Industry

LogoSunday night at the MotorCity Casino Hotel in Detroit the 17th annual Urban Wheel Awards were held to celebrate and award prizes to people of color within the automotive industry. This year all of the recipients of this prestigious award were women.

They included Crystal Windham who won Designer of the Year, Company of the Year Progress in Human Resources, Georgette Borrego-Dulworth, Chrysler's talent acquisition and global diversity director, and Pioneer of the Year Jenell Ross, president of the Bob Ross Auto Group and 2013 chair of the American International Automobile Dealers Association.

"If it weren't for women, the American auto industry wouldn't exist. Who do you think told Henry Ford to go outside and build a car in the first place? Mrs. Ford," said actor Edward James Olmos, who co-hosted the awards with Niecy Nash.

This was to honor "wonderful women who are helping to make those wheels roll," U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., told the audience of 500.
