The Women In Trucking Association (WIT) announced today that Freightliner Trucks has renewed its Gold Level Partnership to help the nonprofit organization elevate the issue of gender diversity in transportation and logistics.

Since 2012, Freightliner Trucks has supported WIT. As part of WIT’s mission to recognize the accomplishments of women in the industry, Freightliner Trucks has continued to sponsor the annual Influential Woman in Trucking Award. In addition, Kary Schaefer, general manager of Product Strategy and Market Development for Daimler Trucks North America, serves on the WIT board of directors.

“Freightliner Trucks is proud to be part of WIT”, said Schaefer. “The mission and goals of WIT closely align with those of DTNA and this partnership gives us an opportunity to share resources to promote and celebrate diversity and inclusion in our industry.”

“We are grateful to partner with a key industry leader like Freightliner,” said Ellen Voie, WIT president and CEO. “Their advocacy accelerates our efforts for more diversity and inclusion in the workplace.” 

Since 2007, WIT has been committed to encouraging women to consider careers in the trucking industry, addressing obstacles that might keep them from succeeding, and celebrating the success of its members. The first virtual Accelerate! Conference and Exhibition, unveiling its Driver Ambassador Trailer, and providing driver members with free health support programs during the COVID-19 pandemic, are just a few examples of recent initiatives that are helping the organization achieve its mission.
