The American Trucking Associations re-christened its Women In Motion program as an ATA Council, opening the door for women across the trucking and transportation industry to join a dynamic and growing community focused on professional development and mentorship.

“Since its inception, Women In Motion has been focused on promoting the role of women in the trucking industry,” said ATA COO Sarah Rajtik, co-chair of Women in Motion. “With this transition, we are hoping to capitalize on the work we’ve already done to reach a much larger group — creating more opportunities for women to connect and empower one another in order to make this great industry better for everyone.”

Previously, WIM was an ATA program, along with other programs such as America's Road Team, Lead ATA, and National Truck Driver Appreciation Week. As a council, Women in Motion joins other ATA councils, including the Technology & Maintenance Council, the National Accounting & Finance Council, the Transportation Security Council, and the Safety Management Council.

Benefits of Joining

Members of WIM are eligible to receive exclusive benefits, including:

  • Access to the WIM electronic yearbook.
  • Quarterly newsletters with special articles written by WIM members, upcoming events and ways to get involved.
  • Action alerts with legislative updates.
  • Member pricing on products, courses, events and more.
  • Priority placement when WIM Speakers’ Bureau speaker requests are submitted.
  • Access to WIM networking events at ATA meetings.
  • WIM ribbon at ATA events.
  • Eligible for any WIM awards.
  • Corporate members are listed on WIM website with link to company webpage.
  • Corporate members received a special logo that they can use to identify themselves as affiliates.

“I encourage any woman in this industry — from drivers to technicians and dispatchers to the C-suite — to come join us as we work to shape the future of this industry, breaking down barriers and paving the way for a new era of inclusivity and leadership in trucking,” said Iowa Motor Truck Association President and CEO Brenda Neville, co-chair of Women In Motion.
