American Trucking Associations invites women in the trucking industry to share their wisdom with aspiring women professionals seeking guidance and support.

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."
