Women in Trucking Careers have Doubled – What Now?

Women are entering the trucking industry in droves. In fact, female representation in the driver workforce has nearly doubled, raising from 7.9% to 14% in just four years, according to Women In Trucking (WIT).

The shifting workforce demographic represents a significant opportunity for trucking companies, who continue to source talent from diverse communities to alleviate the pains of the ongoing driver shortage. However, it also calls attention to the systematic issues within the industry that serve as a barrier to success for many current and future female drivers. Issues which present themselves as early on as CDL School training, all the way to employment.

Join TransForce, UPS and Kellylynn McLaughlin, OTR driver at Clean Harbors and Women of Trucking Advisory Board Member at FMCSA, in a discussion about these barriers, what companies can do to lift them and succeed with recruitment and retention.
