Women In Trucking Association Joins ‘WE Decide 2016′ to Empower Women in Business to Engage in the 2016 Presidential Election

March 21, 2016

Women In Trucking Association (WIT) is announcing its partnership with leading business organizations in a new initiative – WE Decide 2016 – created to encourage women in business to raise their voice this election season and monitor issues of importance to them and their business from now until November 2016.

WE Decide 2016 provides women in business with an opportunity to privately share their opinions on an array of issues, through a unique online platform powered by Women Impacting Public Policy (WIPP) and Personal BlackBox (PBB), a better data relationship company. Women business owners can visit the WE Decide 2016 website – www.WEDecide2016.org – and sign up to access their own personal polling station to confidentially take quick polls on hot topics from the campaign trail, respond to in depth issue surveys, and participate in our “Tell Us!” section to express their unique perspective on the challenges they face.

“Women In Trucking Association is a nonpartisan non-profit organization that recognizes the impact women have on the election, and our partnership with ‘We Decide 2016’ allows us to provide information to our members about the candidates as well as a voice to those in leadership to share concerns and challenges faced by women in the trucking industry,” said WIT President/CEO Ellen Voie. “Every female needs to make her voice heard, but women with businesses have a greater reason to impact public policy.”

As feedback is received, WE Decide 2016 will highlight compelling insights and trends with the goal of educating the candidates, the media, and voters on the top priorities to women in business. Leveraging the insight, secure poll data, and user comments, WE Decide 2016 will publish a Women in Business Policy Priorities report prior to the national conventions to encourage political parties and their candidates to prioritize and discuss issues of significance to women entrepreneurs.

“Female voters will have immense power this presidential election,” said Kristie Arslan, executive director of Women Impacting Public Policy (WIPP). “It is time for women in business to unite to bring to the forefront of the presidential debate the issues critical to secure our own economic empowerment and success.”
