Apply or Nominate a Top Women-Owned Business

Call for Nominations

WIT encourages more women to proactively become leaders in their organizations – and in some cases, to even start their own businesses. Entrepreneurship is a viable means of economic self-sufficiency and many women are choosing an enterprise connected to transportation to be part of their career aspirations. WIT’s official magazine, Redefining the Road, will feature in its edition 2 of 2020, a list of “Top Woman-Owned Businesses” in transportation. Criteria used to identify qualified applicants will include status as majority ownership by a woman, financial stability and growth, innovation, and entrepreneurial spirit of the woman owner. 

Here's how it works:
- Complete the Nomination Form (there is no fee to apply or nominate)
- Be prepared to confirm the enterprise has majority ownership/control by a woman
- Recipients of 2020 Top Woman-Owned Businesses in Transportation will be selected following the nomination deadline
- Top Woman-Owned Businesses in Transportation will be published in the Redefining the Road magazine (Edition 2) in July and will be recognized during a special program at the 2020 Accelerate! Conference & Expo Sept. 24 in Dallas, Texas 
- While membership in the Women In Trucking Association isn't a requirement, nominated companies are highly encouraged to join WIT community.
