Trucking HR Canada launched the Women with Drive initiative a decade ago to support the attraction, recruitment, and retention of women and other under-represented groups in the trucking and logistics industry. The Summit quickly became the go-to event for those committed to fostering real change and sparked partnerships with provincial trucking associations and special networking events across Canada.

This year’s theme Driving a Decade of Change celebrates the profound impact of Women with Drive and the progress of trucking and logistics employers in supporting women’s professional goals. The 2024 Women with Drive Leadership Summit will feature keynote speakers, breakout sessions, networking opportunities and an exciting panel discussion. Summit attendees will leave equipped with tools to create workplaces that attract and retain top talent across all departments.
