“Bridgestone is honored to once again be recognized as a premier place to work for women in the transportation industry,” adds LaTres Jarrett, executive director, TBR Sales, Bridgestone Canada and a board member of WIT. “Like so many others, I am proud to work for an organization that puts a sincere emphasis on supporting its female employees, while also fostering opportunities for women in leadership roles across our industry.”
WIT developed its prestigious recognition program, the Redefining the Road magazine's List of Top Companies for Women to Work For in Transportation in 2018, to recognize companies that are aligned with its mission to support employment of women in the trucking industry, promote their accomplishments, and minimize the obstacles they face. To be named to the list, companies must undergo a rigorous nomination, vetting, and voting process. This year, more than 27,000 transportation professionals participated in industry voting.
"Organizations recognized on this impressive list have proven they are supportive of gender diversity by accommodating family and work balance; offering competitive compensation, benefits, and professional growth; and providing career advancement opportunities," says Brian Everett, group publisher and editorial director for Redefining the Road.
