Measuring the Impact: 2024 WIT Index Now Open

by Women In Trucking Staff, on Feb 20, 2024 6:09:10 PM


Did you know that women make up nearly 12.1% of professional drivers? This is according to the 2023 WIT Index, which also reports the percentages of women in the C-Suite, serving on boards of directors, and in functional roles including operations, technicians, and HR/talent.

Jennifer-Hedrick-WIT-background-300x300“As with most anything in business, if you don’t measure it, you cannot improve it,” says Jennifer Hedrick, President and CEO of WIT. “This is why the WIT Index is so important to the industry. Given the mission of the Women In Trucking Association in part is to encourage the employment of women in the trucking industry, we need to keep monitoring the progress made in bringing more women to all roles in transportation and continuously look for ways to help our member companies and the industry at-large to recruit and retain talented women in critical roles.”

The WIT Index is a fundamental report that helps to amplify the brand, reputation, and value of the association to the industry and to the North American economy. For-hire trucking companies, private fleets, asset-based third-party logistics companies (3PLs), drayage companies, and other associations report their percentage of professional drivers who are women. These companies, along with other market segments in transportation (such as technology innovators, equipment manufacturers, railroads and ocean carriers), also report their percentage of leadership and functional roles that are female.

Data provided is held in the strictest of confidence and is only reported as an aggregate and NOT on an individual basis. Additionally, to nominate your company as a Top Company for Women to Work For in Transportation or Top Woman-Owned Business in Transportation in 2024, you must participate in the WIT Index.
