This week we attended the Accelerate! Conference & Expo put on by the Women in Trucking Association. Complete with exhibitors and workshops covering topics like how to advocate for yourself, speed mentoring, and how to make connections, this event was a fantastic reminder of why we support the Women in Trucking Association and how important it is to support spaces for women in the trucking industry.
What is the Women in Trucking Association?
The Women in Trucking Association is a non-profit organization with the mission to encourage the employment of women in the trucking industry, promote their accomplishments, and minimize obstacles faced by women working in the industry.
Why Do We Support the Women in Trucking Association?
According to the Women in Trucking Association, as of this year, 12.1% of professional drivers are female. At TEL, we believe everyone who has big dreams should be given the opportunity to work hard and achieve them. Our ultimate goal is to support fleet owners who want to grow and owner-operators who want to start their own businesses.
TEL is honored to support such an impactful organization that works hard to build such a strong community among members and like-minded individuals.
