OTTAWA, Ont. – Former governor general Michaelle Jean will open the 2021 Women with Drive leadership summit, Trucking HR Canada said Monday.

The virtual conference will be held March 10.

The theme, Linking Global Leaders, will bring an international perspective on how the pandemic is impacting work in the industry, Trucking HR said.
