The Women In Trucking (WIT) Association has a new Gold Level partner. Great Dane Trailers has joined Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems, LLC, Frito-Lay NA , Hyundai Translead and Walmart as top supporters of the nonprofit organization.
With the addition of Great Dane Trailers, we now have five corporate members that have moved beyond their membership into a partnership where they have greater influence in the activities of the association, said Ellen Voie, WIT’s President/CEO. Great Dane’s support will help us move our mission to bring more women into the trucking industry at all levels, including trailer manufacturing and sales, added Voie.
Challenges for women in the workplace are dynamic, particularly in the trucking industry, said Great Dane Vice President of Marketing Brandie Fuller. Great Dane is pleased to join Women in Trucking, an organization that positions itself a catalyst for positive change.
Women In Trucking Association has experienced considerable growth in its five-year existence and represents nearly 1,900 members in the United States, Canada, England and Australia. Upcoming events include the Third Annual Salute to Women Behind the Wheel, held at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Kentucky this month.
