Women in Trucking honors leading employers for women
Schneider (NYSE: SNDR), a premier multimodal provider of transportation, intermodal and logistics services, has been named a 2022 Top Company for Women to Work for in Transportation year over year by Redefining the Road, the official magazine of the Women in Trucking Association (WIT).
WIT recognized companies for their efforts in the following:
- corporate cultures that foster gender diversity;
- competitive compensation and benefits;
- flexible hours and work requirements; and
- professional development and career advancement opportunities.
“We are excited that there’s been a significant uptick in women interested in pursuing a career in trucking,” said Schneider Executive Vice President of Human Resources Angela Fish. “We are incredibly proud to be recognized as a leader in increasing accessibility and removing fundamental obstacles that have long deterred women from entering the industry.”
Schneider has created an environment where women feel comfortable and can advance their trucking careers, exemplified by their leadership mentor program in which 47% of participants are women.
KayLeigh McCall, driver and training engineer at Schneider, serves as WIT’s Driver Ambassador. While shipping across the country, McCall encourages more women to join the industry and raises awareness around gender equity.
“I continue to be humbled to serve in this role and encourage all women to consider a career in trucking,” said McCall. “I have been unbelievably fortunate that Schneider facilitates a safe and inclusive culture that empowers women, no matter the age, to discover their passion for driving.”
Schneider will be formally recognized at the WIT Accelerate! Conference & Expo this week in Texas.
