American Trucking Associations unveiled its Women in Motion Mentorship Program, designed to foster the growth and development of women in the transportation industry, the trade group announced in a press release.
"As a mentor, you not only have the chance to give back and make a positive impact on someone's life but also to learn and grow from the experience," said Women in Motion Co-Chairperson Sarah Rajtik, ATA executive vice president of human resources, operations, and industry affairs. "Through mentorship, we can collectively empower the next generation of women leaders and shape a brighter future for our industry."
Open to professionals in various roles within the industry, the Women in Motion Mentorship Program invites individuals to join as mentors and make a difference in the lives of young women, according to the release.
The Women in Motion Mentorship Program will be launched during ATA's Management Conference & Exhibition, scheduled for Oct. 14-17 in Austin, Texas. As part of the conference, ATA will host a mentor-mentee mixer event, providing mentors and mentees with an ideal setting to connect and begin cultivating valuable relationships.
