Women In Trucking has moved its annual conference online. WIT announced recently its sixth annual Accelerate! Conference & Expo will be held online Nov. 12-13.
The association said that after monitoring the recent escalation of COVID-19 cases nationwide, as well as in Dallas where the in-person conference was originally scheduled to be held Sept. 23-25, it has been determined that focusing on a comprehensive virtual event is the best path forward for the association and attendees.
The online conference will include:
- More than 40 educational sessions over two days focused on critical transportation issues and trends, along with perspectives of women in the industry
- Five themed tracks about Leadership, Professional Development, HR/Talent Management, Operations, and Sales and Marketing
- Panel discussions featuring insights and best practices from industry professionals and leaders, and professional drivers
- Peer-to-peer interactive roundtable discussion groups that accommodate live discussions around common areas of interest
- Virtual exhibition of products and services
