Are you an HR Representative in the Trucking Industry? Take our LGBTQ+ Identification Survey
WIT realizes there is a growing number of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer professional drivers and other transportation workers. As the voice of gender diversity, we want to ensure we are inclusive and to create an awareness within the trucking industry.
WIT created a Gender Diversity task force to better understand the issues faced by those in the LGBTQ+ community and to improve our member's ability to identify and address these obstacles and to eliminate outright discrimination.
We are also pleased to have a task force member from Cargo Transporters, the only truckload carrier in the US to receive a perfect score on the Corporate Equality Index, which is the benchmarking report on practices related to LGBTQ+ workplace equality. They were identified as a 2019 Best Places to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality.
Using the Human Rights Campaign Foundation Corporate Equality Index information, we have created a survey to determine best practices in hiring, promoting, and accommodating the LGBTQ+ community. We hope to use this to highlight companies like Cargo Transporters who have made real efforts in providing an inclusive and diverse workforce.
While some may still view the trucking industry as a place for white males, Women In Trucking Association is working hard to create an environment where anyone will feel valued, respected and appreciated, regardless of their gender identity.
