The Women in Trucking Association (WIT) recently announced its second annual list of Top Women to Watch in Transportation. Each individual on the list was selected based on their significant career accomplishments in the past year, and on their commitments to improving gender diversity within the industry.
“This year, we’ve identified 53 women who stand out as top performers in a field of highly qualified nominees,” said Brian Everett, Group Editorial Director and Publisher of Redefining the Road magazine. “They represent a diverse range of company types and a variety of roles and responsibilities, showcasing the many career opportunities for women in the transportation industry.”
Among the list of the 2019 Top Women to Watch in Transportation, some work for motor carriers, third-party logistics companies, equipment manufacturers, retailer truck dealers, professional services companies, technology innovators, and private fleets.
Ellen Voie, Women in Trucking’s President and CEO, said, “It is exciting to see so many remarkable women not only pushing the envelope in their own careers, but also supporting women around them. Celebrating the accomplishments of women in our industry is central to the mission of Women in Trucking, so we’re especially pleased to recognize these industry leaders.”
