Women In Trucking Association announces continued Gold Level Partnership with PACCAR
The Women In Trucking Association (WIT) announced that PACCAR has renewed its Gold Level Partnership, helping the nonprofit organization empower more women to develop careers in transportation, celebrate their successes, and address the challenges they face.
In addition to providing financial support, the company actively participates in the association. Michele Rodgers, Director of Business & Product Development for Dynacraft, a PACCAR Company, serves on the WIT board of directors.
“PACCAR is proud to support Women In Trucking, an organization with diversity-focused initiatives that parallel our own,” said Rodgers. “Inclusion initiatives within PACCAR and the industry drive success and open doors to all.”
“We are grateful to have the continued support from an influential business leader like PACCAR,” said Ellen Voie, president, and CEO of WIT. “Their passion and advocacy for diversifying the industry are instrumental in advancing the WIT mission and affecting real change in the industry.”
Since 2007, WIT has been committed to bringing greater opportunities for women in transportation and helping them succeed. A few recent accomplishments include a record-breaking attendance at the 2019 Accelerate! Conference and Exhibition; an award-winning magazine that explores gender issues in transportation; and a weekly SiriusXM radio show called Women In Trucking that features listener call-ins and interviews with professionals from the trucking industry.
