Women In Trucking Association announces Gold Level Sponsorship through FedEx Freight
The Women In Trucking Association (WIT) welcomes FedEx Freight as its newest Gold Level Sponsor, helping the organization empower more women to develop careers in transportation. Tracci Schultz, senior vice president, Strategic Plan, Engineering, Operational Solutions at FedEx Freight, will serve on the WIT Board of Directors.
FedEx Freight has actively participated in the association as a Bronze Level Sponsor. Now supporting WIT at the Gold Level, the company is furthering its commitment to advancing gender diversity in the industry.
“FedEx Freight recognizes the value of a diverse workforce and we are grateful for their support as an influential industry leader,” said Ellen Voie, president and CEO of WIT. “Relationships like these will help us to continue to encourage employment, promote accomplishments, and minimize obstacles faced by women working in the industry.”
Since 2007, with the support of its members and partners, WIT has significantly impacted transportation and logistics in its efforts to advance gender diversity. A few recent accomplishments include a transportation doll, Clare, that introduces the next generation to the trucking industry, a record-breaking attendance at the 2018 Accelerate! Conference and Exhibition, and a weekly SiriusXM radio show called Women In Trucking that addresses critical industry issues and pushes for more women to consider trucking.
