PLOVER, Wis. — Women In Trucking (WIT) is now accepting nominations for the organization’s “Top Women to Watch in Transportation.”

“Promoting the accomplishments of women is a big part of the Women In Trucking Association’s mission,” said Ellen Voie, WIT president and CEO. “Many women are making great strides and accomplishments in their careers and positively impacting their companies and helping to promote greater gender diversity.”

The next issue of WIT’s magazine Redefining the Road magazine will feature “Top Women to Watch in Transportation.”

Those interested can apply or nominate a woman who is worthy of this distinction, whether her role is in leadership, operations and safety, HR/talent management, sales and marketing or a professional truck driver, Voie said.

Criteria used to identify qualified applicants will include significant accomplishments they’ve made in their career during the past 12-18 months.

Nominations will be accepted through December 5.
