Ancora Education was recently named as one of the 2022 “Top Companies for Women to Work for in Transportation” by the Women in Trucking Association (WIT), a nonprofit organization working to bring gender diversity to the transportation industry. Ancora was recognized at the WIT Accelerate! Conference & Expo November 13-16 in Dallas.
Women only account for 10% of the nation’s drivers. We need to change that statistic
“Women are breaking barriers and redefining roles in transportation, yet women only account for 10% of the nation’s drivers. We need to change that statistic,” said Natalie Williams, Vice President of Operations at Ancora Education. “If they want to get behind the wheel and enjoy the open road, inspire young minds in the classroom, or have an interest in leadership, women in this industry have the opportunity to create their own path. Our goal at Ancora Education is to foster an environment where women can thrive, network, and hone their skills. We couldn’t be more thrilled to share this moment with them.”
Since 2018, WIT has promoted the accomplishments of companies focused on recruitment and retention of women in the trucking industry with the “Top Companies for Women to Work for in Transportation” award. In addition to votes from their peers and leaders in the industry, Ancora earned scores based on a corporate culture that’s focused on gender diversity, professional development opportunities, career advancement, competitive compensation, benefits, flexible hours and work requirements.
More than 22,000 votes were cast in selecting the top companies of 2022.
