Women in Trucking marks anniversary
Apr 1, 2008 12:00 PM
Women In Trucking, a non-profit organization created to encourage employment of women and assist in promoting a more female-friendly environment for those already in the trucking industry, celebrated its one-year anniversary and hit a record 1,000 corporate and individual members.
WIT was officially founded March 12, 2007 as a means to encourage women to consider a career in trucking, but to also provide a platform to voice the successes and struggles of women already in the male-dominated field.
To date, the organization's 1,000 members include people at 80 corporations and 11 trucking schools, as well as 203 drivers, 133 non-driving individuals, and 56 students. Nearly 20 percent of the members are men.
