“Championing Women Leaders”
(Leadership Track)

Peterbilt Motors understands the importance of championing the development of women leaders within the organization by providing education, support, networking and personal growth opportunities. The Peterbilt Women’s Initiative Network, better known as PBWIN, was developed to bridge the gap that existed. The journey to establish this network for its employees, both male and female, has been paved by women executives within the organization, who know first-hand the benefit of mentorship, outreach, and continual self-development. This session will cover why Peterbilt Motors saw the need, how the company went about the quest, what they learned, and ultimately what the future holds.

This session will cover the following areas, all aimed at inspiring others to recognize the need, and take action within their own organizations to champion the cause:

  • Why there is a need for championing women leaders
  • How do you get started, and where can you look to for support
  • What Peterbilt has learned through their journey
  • Where do we go from here?
  • How to be a champion

Presenters from Peterbilt Motors Company: Erin Luke, Fleet Sales Administration Manager; Michele Rodgers, Director of Program Management; Michelle Ponsonby, Supplier Recovery Manager; and Alison Cochran, Product Planning Manager.
