Achieving Greatness:

Overcoming Challenges and Taking Risks to Go Beyond Your Comfort Zone.

It’s time to come together once again for our Logistics Sessions to recognize the unique contributions of women in logistics, how far we’ve come, what we must do to keep growing, the challenges overcome, and the efforts made by our drivers to create safe environments for women. We are hosting a special event dedicated to celebrating their achievements in the industry and building a more gender-inclusive future.         

At this event, we will explore ways to empower women in the logistics industry by emphasizing leadership, skills, and abilities. Our goal is to demonstrate that gender should not limit our ability to succeed in this field or any other! We will discuss how to combat fear and take ownership of our professional career paths despite the challenges that may arise.

Let’s work towards this vision and support one another in our professional endeavors.

Please join Women in Trucking Association and GLT Logistics in our next event to commemorate our significant strides toward progress!
