Women In Trucking Association Launches New Community Platform Engage

Plover, WI – January 16, 2018 – The Women In Trucking Association (WIT) announced today the launch of its new member-only online community platform, Engage. This encourages mentoring, community and education by allowing members to virtually connect and collaborate through distinct community groups. This is part of WIT’s mission to advance gender diversity in the transportation industry.

Core community groups will include: Professional Drivers, Business Leaders in Trucking, Operations Professionals, HR/Talent Management Professionals, and Sales & Marketing Professionals. Through these online communities, members can ask questions, share ideas and experiences, discuss challenges and best practices, and upload informational resources.

Engage is a phenomenal new member benefit and resource that will empower members to create invaluable knowledge hubs and networks, foster engagement, and build stronger peer relationships,” said Ellen Voie, WIT president and CEO. “The platform provides a way for WIT to better understand its members, what they’re interested in and need, and how to provide more value to them.”

For over a decade, WIT has instituted a multitude of community-building initiatives to raise awareness and encourage the number of women employed in transportation. Along with the introduction of Engage, these initiatives include: WIT’s annual Accelerate! Conference & Exhibition, a new “Women In Trucking” patch for Girl Scouts, and the annual “Salute to Women Behind the Wheel” event to recognize and thank professional drivers.
