The industry is clearly interested in generating dialogue and action around the importance of gender diversity in transportation and logistics, and the Women In Trucking Association is proud to provide a forum for doing so.
(PRWEB) January 15, 2016
The event is designed to support WIT’s mission: encouraging the employment of women in the trucking industry, promoting their accomplishments and minimizing the obstacles they face. It will feature educational sessions, executive insights, best practices, and a comprehensive expo focused on creating a positive environment for women employed in the transportation industry.
This year’s event will build on the success of the inaugural 2015 Accelerate! Conference & Expo which drew more than 350 attendees, ranging from trucking companies and 3PLs to manufacturers, retailers, truck driving schools, and financial, insurance, health and fitness services. WIT plans to double the size of the expo this year to give more companies the opportunity to show support for the employment and advancement of women who work in transportation careers, as well as to showcase their products and services.
“The industry is clearly interested in generating dialogue and action around the importance of gender diversity in transportation and logistics, and the Women In Trucking Association is proud to provide a forum for doing so,” said Ellen Voie, WIT president and CEO. “The sooner everyone can recognize and leverage the unique skills and talents that women bring to the table at all levels of the organization, the greater the value we can provide for the industry.”
WIT offers three levels of sponsorship packages which include a blend of online branding, print marketing, and on-site visibility. Exhibit space is also available. More details and the event prospectus are available at http://www.womenintrucking.org/exhibit-sponsor.
