For over a decade, Women In Trucking has been focused on this clear mission to encourage employment, address obstacles and celebrate success. It's supported by a passionate leadership team, highly engaged members, and committed sponsors and partners. The organization continues to build a strong community among its members (primarily business professionals and professional drivers) who believe in and support the mission.
Fleet Advantage is a strong example of how diversity and inclusion in the workplace can have a substantially positive impact on transportation organizations, employees, customers, and the surrounding communities in driving America’s businesses forward. The company believes that the long-term success of any business calls for a diverse body of talent that can bring fresh ideas, perspectives, and viewpoints into the workplace. Fleet Advantage executives strive to create a culture of diverse individuals from all races, genders, education levels, and cultural backgrounds. The company today offers a workforce represented by 44% female and 36% minority professionals on its staff.
“Fleet Advantage believes that it is important for women to mentor other women, provide opportunities and lift each other up,” said Katerina Jones, Vice President, Marketing and Business Development. “We also believe that the professional direction women receive from other women is essential. Outside of talent and hard work, sometimes women need support from others to champion their ideas and goals, which studies continue to show, may not always receive the same amount of direction and prioritization as those of their male colleagues.”
A staunch advocate of helping women in the transportation industry herself, Jones brings over 17 years of client-centric, data-driven and outcome-focused integrated experience across broad industries and services to Fleet Advantage. She is seen as a leader and mentor for other women in the transportation industry, bringing attention to their strengths in a predominately male-led field.
