Summit focuses on “women with drive”
TORONTO, ON - Barely 3% of Canada's truck drivers and techs are women, but that is something the organizers of Trucking HR Canada's second annual Women with Drive summit hope to change. More than 180 industry representatives packed into a Mississauga, Ontario hotel on March 3, discussing ways to recruit, train and retain more women in a traditionally male-dominated field. "It isn't very often in our industry that we have this many women together in one room," said Angela Splinter, CEO of Trucking HR Canada. "Our goal is to keep that conversation going." There were plenty of conversations to be had.
