It’s not complicated: Good pay, strong benefits draw women to trucking jobs and help keep them there
Here’s a question the team at The National Transportation Institute hears often — and it’s likely one you’ve asked internally at your fleet, too: How can we make driving jobs more appealing to women?
There’s a “Help Wanted” sign on nearly every door at every business in the country, and carriers must find a way to set themselves apart in the labor market, and every fleet must find its own path to address this real obstacle to people entering and staying in the industry.
NTI’s Leah Shaver reflects on her time on the WIT board: promoting trucking as a positive career, forging relationships, building mentorship programs, and seeing trucking evolve to become a more gender-inclusive industry.
NTI celebrates not only these women, but all women making trucking history, for their work, dedication, and courage, and invites everyone in the industry to recognize their achievements this Women’s History Month.
