Plover, WI – October 18, 2022 – The Women In Trucking Association (WIT) has announced Pilot Company as its fuel sponsor for the 2022 Driver Ambassador Program. The program focuses on promoting career opportunities for women in the trucking industry, celebrating success stories, and raising awareness for WIT’s mission.

An essential feature of the program is WITney, the association’s one-of-a-kind educational trailer. The expo trailer accompanies the Driver Ambassador out on the road, attending schools and industry events. Not only is WITney a traveling billboard for the nonprofit, but hosts an array of educational and interactive components, such as interactive kiosks on trucking 101, common myths, and whether a career in trucking would be the right fit based on personality and lifestyle. Additionally, a custom-made state-of-the-art driver simulator allows attendees to experience truck driving in different scenarios, regions of the country, weather conditions, and more.

“Pilot Company’s fuel sponsorship will have a major influence on the expansion of this program,” said Ellen Voie, WIT president and CEO. “The additional resources allow WITney to travel to more locations and events, such as public schools and Girl Scout events. This sponsorship will positively impact diversity in the trucking industry.”

“We are honored to support Women In Trucking and the WITney educational trailer,” said Whitney Johnson, Pilot Company chief experience officer. “Through education and celebration of the amazing achievements of women in our industry, we can inspire future generations and encourage more women to get into trucking.”
