Transgender & Gender Diverse Workforce Inclusion Training

by Women In Trucking Staff, on Mar 12, 2023 12:42:12 PM


The complexity of understanding gender identity within a workplace setting cannot be understated. In our society, gender impacts individuals in the workplace in a multitude of ways such as power, privilege, leadership, employment opportunities, productivity, and much more. Part of our mission is to promote the importance of diversity and acceptance in the workplace.

Dr. Gennifer Herley of TransNewYork had the honor of facilitating a meaningful panel discussion about Diversity and Inclusion at the 2022 Accelerate! Conference & Expo, hosted by the Women In Trucking Association, with the following participants: Lindsay Goodman, JB Hunt, Regan Payne, Fusion Now, and John Pope, Cargo Transporters.


With an overwhelming interest and attendance at the session, we've teamed up with TransNewYork to help bring an online training event that provides strategies and the best practices in building and communicating in an inclusive environment.
