|Women In Trucking Association Celebrates Decade of Steering Toward Diversity|
Plover, WI – Mar. 30, 2017 – The Women In Trucking Association (WIT) celebrates its 10th anniversary this month. Over the past decade, the nonprofit organization has made remarkable progress in its mission to encourage women to consider careers in the trucking industry, address obstacles that might keep them from succeeding, and celebrate the success of its members.
Founded by Ellen Voie in 2007, WIT has grown dramatically and now exceeds 4,500 members, including carriers, suppliers, industry professionals, drivers, and students. Approximately 16 percent of WIT members are men who support the goals of the program.
While women are still a minority in the transportation industry, WIT has made great strides in helping to raise awareness and increase the ranks of women through numerous initiatives. Highlights include:
“We’re so grateful for the hard work and dedication of our members, board members and partners over the past 10 years,” said Ellen Voie, WIT president and CEO. “We have a long way to go, but we’ll keep working to engage more women at all levels of the transportation industry. Together, we can drive the industry forward.”
