Nominations Open for 2015 Woman in Trucking Award

Women in Trucking Association and Navistar Inc. are seeking candidates for the 2015 Influential Woman in Trucking award.

The honor, in its fifth year, recognizes women who make or influence key decisions in a corporate, manufacturing, supplier, owner-operator, sales or dealership setting. The winner must have a proven record of responsibility and mentored or served as a role model to other women in the industry.

“This award supports our mission to celebrate the success of women in the trucking industry by highlighting women who have been pioneers and role models for those of us working in the transportation careers,” Women in Trucking CEO Ellen Voie said.

WIT and Navistar teamed up to develop the award in 2010 as a way to honor female leaders in trucking, and to attract and advance women in the industry.

“This award has become a great platform to gain visibility for the leadership of women in trucking,” said Lisa Hartenberger, Navistar’s director of corporate communications. “As we’ve recognized the contributions of women in our industry, we’ve also had the opportunity to build dialogue around ways to promote further diversity.”

Nominations will be accepted through Jan. 31 at
