“Michelin North America, Inc. is proud to strengthen our association with Women in Trucking, an organization that shares our fervent belief in the benefits to be had by strengthening the engagement of women in the transportation industry, and an organization that is doing such great work to advance that cause," said Murphy.

“We are thrilled to add Michelin North America, Inc. as a Gold Partner,” said Ellen Voie, WIT president and CEO. “Their passion and advocacy for positive change by engaging more women in transportation will be instrumental in advancing the WIT mission.”
