Meet Trucking’s New Image Ambassadors

PLOVER, WI – Women in Trucking (WIT) has launched the Image Team, a branch of WIT exclusively made up of female professional drivers, who will participate in ride-along events for legislators, regulators and industry leaders to provide a deeper understanding of the obstacles they face on the road.

WIT’s Image Team will also speak to the media and other drivers at public events and industry trade shows.

WIT’s mission is to encourage the employment of women in the trucking industry, promote their accomplishments and minimize obstacles faced by women in the trucking industry. The purpose of the Image Team is to represent these goals while bringing awareness of the need for more female drivers and the challenges they face working in a male dominated environment.

Meet the 2015 Women In Trucking Image Team:

•    Stephanie Klang, Con-way Truckload;
•    Allyson Hay, Walmart Transportation;
•    Wyzeena Heeny, Covenant Transport;
•    Carol Nixon, Walmart Transportation;
•    Ingrid Brown, Rollin’ B LLC.

To become a member of WIT’s Image Team, the applicant must have a valid commercial license, be a member of WIT for at least one year and submit an application, which requires an essay of 250 words to explain why she should be chosen for the Image Team.
