The Women In Trucking Association (WIT) is partnering with the Transportation Marketing & Sales Association (TMSA) to recognize best practices in reflecting diversity in transportation marketing. The TMSA Annual Compass Awards will now include a category that will improve the awareness of minorities (and women) in the transportation industry.
“Our goal is to recognize the companies that include women in their advertising and recruiting campaigns and use images and slogans that support the objective of a more diverse work industry,” said Ellen Voie, WIT’s President/CEO. Women In Trucking Association is sponsoring the newly created award category to be presented at the Compass Awards Gala during the TMSA Annual Conference, June 3-5 in Hollywood, Florida.
“We are pleased to have established this new partnership with the WIT and having this opportunity to celebrate diversity. By establishing this new Compass Award category we will promote the recognition of diversity programs in our industry,” said David Hoppens, president of the TMSA.
The TMSA Compass Award is the highest level of professional achievement and recognition in marketing, communications and sales in today’s transportation, logistics and passenger transit marketplace. The awards are judged by industry peers and evaluated using a six point scaling system. Winners will be notified in April and invited to attend the Compass Awards Gala.
