Women In Trucking Launches Professional Driver Hub
by Women In Trucking Staff, on May 11, 2022 6:30:00 AM
Jennifer is a millennial seeking answers about what it takes to become a professional driver as she considers career options. Nancy is a seasoned driver looking to network with other drivers for help on how to improve life and habits on the road. But, where can these women find a network and resources unique to the needs and lifestyle of women truck drivers?
Now they can find it all through the newly launched Professional Driver Hub by the Women In Trucking Association. It’s an online resource and community rich in written and video content and connections geared specifically to the needs of female drivers.
“There’s a lot of information out there for drivers, but it’s fragmented, sometimes difficult to find, usually not designed for the unique interests or needs of female drivers,” says Ellen Voie, WIT President and CEO. “With a significant percentage of our members being professional drivers, this is a tremendous new way to provide value to professional drivers.”
The WIT Professional Driver Hub is available to members and non-members, although Voie believes the new platform will be an excellent way for WIT to engage new driver members.
The driver platform features the following:
