Invite, Include, Involve: Women in the Driver Seat
A Panel Discussion Celebrating Women in the Trucking Industry
March is International Women's History Month
Only 12.5% of all workers in transportation are women, and among truck drivers, it's even less -- at only 10%! And yet, we at WorkHound are asked all of the time by trucking companies: How do we recruit more women to apply for our jobs?
In this discussion, WorkHound has invited some women who are making history during Women's History Month. Learn from Maribeth Kneuve (VP of Drive Van at Marten Transport), KellyLynn McLaughlin (Driver for Schneider & Ambassador of Women in Trucking), Wendy Bartz (VP of Customer Experience at DriverReach), and the conversation will be moderated by WorkHound's own, Katie Love.
On this Webinar, you'll learn:
- What attracted each panelist to the industry
- How they're making an impact in trucking
- What carriers can do to invite, involve, and include more women in the industry
Who Should Attend?
All trucking industry folks who want to learn more about becoming a better ally for women in the industry
