Bringing Gender Diversity to Transportation


The Women In Trucking Association is a non-profit organization with the mission to encourage the employment of women in the trucking industry, promote their accomplishments, and minimize obstacles faced by women working in the industry.

Our Mission

For nearly a decade, we've been focused on this clear mission. It's supported by a passionate leadership team, highly engaged members, and committed sponsors and partners.

We continue to build a strong community among our members (primarily business professionals and professional drivers) who believe in and support our mission.

 

Encourage Employment

Gender diversity brings new perspectives, fuels greater idea generation, problem solving and innovation, increasing business performance and overall revenue generation. Gain access to relevant market intelligence, content, networking, collaboration and best practices to help you achieve this.

Address Obstacles

Women need flexible work arrangements, fair compensation, and inclusive corporate cultures that encourage and support professional development and advancement of women. Find resources, next practices, innovative ideas, and content that help ensure such corporate cultures.

Celebrate Success

Many companies in transportation are reaping the benefits of solid workforce diversity. See what other skilled individuals and innovative companies are doing capitalize on the benefits of gender diversity through WIT’s various awards and recognition programs.
