My Year as the Influential Woman in Trucking

Ask Angela: How was your year as the Influential Woman In Trucking?
This opportunity allowed me to meet many amazing people. I was able to travel and speak at conferences - helping promote diversity in the industry. I met people who have dedicated their lives to trucking and those just thinking about starting a career. It's an exciting time to join a fleet, purchase your first rig or venture off - starting a trucking or 3PL company of your own. The opportunities are out there and associations like WIT are here to answer questions and provide support and connections.
It will be bittersweet handing over the title of Influential Woman of the Year in October at the Accelerate! conference in Dallas. It will be great to pass the torch to another very-deserved woman. But, I will miss the continuous interactions I've had with Ellen and the entire staff. I, along with my company AGT Global Logistics, will remain a member, supporter, and sponsor of WIT. I look forward to promoting the Association's mission and messages well into the future.
Thank you to all Women In Trucking - you keep the world turning.
