The mission of Girl Gang Garage is to elevate, encourage, and champion women’s entry and advancement within the automotive & skilled trade industries. Inspire women to discover and build confidence in their own talents, remove barriers, and provide a safe, supportive environment to explore opportunities within the welding, automotive service/repair, paint, and body industries.
Who We Are
Girl Gang Garage is lead by women, for women. Led by Bogi Lateiner, who is dedicated to exciting the next generation of automotive professionals while empowering and strengthening the current industry.

All Female Builds
Girl Gang Garage may not have invented All-Female Builds, but we have perfected them into a premier training and educational opportunity for women of all ages and experience levels. These builds are all female, not to EXCLUDE men, but instead create a space that INCLUDES women. Our all-female builds often start as vehicles seemingly destined for the scrapyard who find new life through the collective vision of founders Bogi and Shawnda and our fierce gang of women participants.
