ATA Creates Program to Support Women in Trucking

ATA Creates Program to Support Women in Trucking

As of this month, The American Trucking Association is launching a new program focused on emphasizing the women in the trucking industry. This new initiative is aimed at encouraging more women to consider working within the industry. The American Trucking Association also aims to address issue revolving policies and their impact on women.

The new program by the American Trucking Association is being dubbed, “The Women in Motion” program. Women in Motion is focusing on providing a more secure work environment for women in the industry by collaborating with coalition partners, policy makers, and business leaders. In addition to these steps the program plans to develop and advocate for issues like safer truck parking and improve diversity within trucking as a whole.

“The trucking industry relies on women – whether in the boardroom, as a technician, or behind the wheel – and we believe that by highlighting the many contributions the women already in trucking make, we can demonstrate what a rewarding and lucrative career path it can be for millions of others”

ATA President and CEO Chris Spear

The website also has tools and research that women can use in order to bring awareness to others about opportunities within the trucking industry.

Nearly 8% of professional drivers are women, an all-time high – but still lagging behind the national average for workforce participation for women. Similarly, just 4% of all diesel technicians are women – well below the national average.
