“Parting Thoughts” from WIT’s Founder

by Ellen Voie, on Jun 29, 2023 11:15:39 AM


Four years ago, I told my board of directors that my plan was to retire in July of 2023.  It seemed that it would be a long time, but now I’m counting days, not months or years. Since 2007, I have been so blessed to meet such wonderful people who believe in our mission. We’ve grown from a concept to an amazing group of nearly 8,000 women and men around the world who share our passion to create a more gender diverse trucking industry. 

I wish I could personally thank every one of you personally, but this blog allows me to reach a greater audience to offer my sincere appreciation for your support. Thank you for being a member, a sponsor, a partner and a friend. I will truly miss the camaraderie and more importantly, the hugs! 

As founder, I won’t be going too far, as I plan to continue my SiriusXM radio show every Saturday on Road Dog 146 for the coming years. Be sure to call in and say hello.  I also hope to serve on some of your boards and bring my 44 years of industry knowledge to your organization. 

Personally, I will be spending more time with my granddaughters (ages six, two and one on the way.) I also plan on spending more time in the air flying my Cessna Skyhawk. Reading and relaxing are also high on my list of things to do.  

Please stay in touch with me and please continue to bring your enthusiasm and your support to our events!
