Women In Trucking
- Our Community
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.
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.
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.
