Women Truckers Get a Great Dane
Great Dane Trailers has signed on with Women In Trucking (WIT) as a new Gold Level partner, joining Bendix, Frito-Lay, Hyundai Translead and Walmart as top supporters of the nonprofit organization.
"Challenges for women in the workplace are dynamic, particularly in the trucking industry," said Great Dane Vice president of marketing Brandie Fuller. "Great Dane is pleased to join Women in Trucking, an organization that positions itself a catalyst for positive change."
Fuller will become a member of the WIT board of directors at its annual meeting later this month. "I am honored to have an opportunity to serve Women In Trucking Association on the board of directors. I look forward to actively participating in an organization that supports, advocates and cultivates self-empowered professional women," said Fuller.
Ellen Voie, WIT's president and CEO, said that Great Dane's support will help them bring "more women into the trucking industry at all levels, including trailer manufacturing and sales. "
Women In Trucking was established to encourage the employment of women in the trucking industry, promote their accomplishments and minimize obstacles faced by women working in the trucking industry. Membership is not limited to women, as sixteen percent of its members are men who support the mission.
