The Women’s Coalition of Motorcyclists (WCM) is actively seeking applications to become one of thirteen members of their At-Large Board.
Targeted squarely at influencing the women’s segment of the motorcycle industry, we are creating a dynamic coalition called the WCM Coalition At-Large Board. WCM CAB members must be change makers and/or passionate female riders.
The WCM CAB will assist the WCM to develop comprehensive guidelines in four
key areas: 1) how to design motorcycles and accessories for women; 2) how to design well-fitting riding apparel and safety gear for women 3) how to effectively sell motorcycles, gear and accessories to women and provide service for women’s motorcycles; and 4) how to train women to ride proficiently and become rider trainers themselves.
The WCM anticipates sharing the results of this work in the form of reports and presentations provided to interested businesses within the motorcycle industry. Overall, the mission of the WCM is to double the number of female riders by 2020. This addition to the existing board is intended to augment the work the group is already doing.
“The WCM is the engine needed to propel us into a brighter future for women’s empowerment, female motorcyclists and motorcycling overall,” said Sue Slate, one of the founders of WCM and the executive director of the Women’s Motorcycle Foundation, Inc. “There is still much that can be done to grow the ranks of female riders. The WCM CAB is a great way to accelerate us in that direction.”
Members of the motorcycling community who want to be a part of this change movement should submit an application at: http://wcm2020.org/wcm-cab-nominations/.
The WCM will be accepting applications and inquiries through the end of November 2018 and virtually convening the first WCM CAB in January, 2019. The WCM CAB members will be publicly announced and recognized on our website at that time.
