ATA Praises Promoting Women in Trucking Workforce Act

American Trucking Associations praised the introduction of the Promoting Women in Trucking Workforce Act, which has been sponsored in both the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives.

The bills would, among other things, establish a “Women of Trucking Advisory Board” to better identify barriers to entry for women in the trucking industry. The board would be responsible for coordinating formal education and training programs, establishing mentorship opportunities for women in the industry and enhancing outreach initiatives that are exclusive to women.

ATA provided letters in support of the legislation, citing the growing and rewarding career opportunities to be found in trucking as the demand for drivers continues to intensify in the years to come.

American Trucking Associations is a national trade association for the trucking industry.
