New blog from Women in Trucking

| January 22, 2012

The Women In Trucking Association (WIT) recently launched an online forum at womenintruckingblog.com, to add a more interactive blog to their long-extant online presence at womenintrucking.org.

“Drivers are some of the most technologically advanced people I know and many of them interact via social media each day,” said Ellen Voie, WIT’s President/CEO.  “By offering this forum we can give our members the opportunity to connect with others who share their involvement in trucking and to learn more about our organization in the process.”

The blog was created with the support of Con-way Inc. “The new blog will serve as another resource to help Women In Trucking continue its mission of encouraging women to pursue trucking as a career and supporting their growth and development in the transportation industry,” said Con-way Director of Communications Gary Frantz. “Con-way is proud to sponsor and support this worthwhile endeavor.”

Con-way Truckload, you’ll recall, has an ongoing health blog of its own, launched at the Great American Trucking Show in Dallas last year. They’ve got some great-sounding slow-cooker recipes up there now, among other info, if you’re packing a crock pot. Check it all out here.

WIT encourages all drivers, male and female, to interact with the association via the new blog. There’s not a whole lot there as yet, but keep an eye on it for future growth.
