International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action, the campaign this year is Pledge for Parity.
With all the progress made in this arena, the World Economic Forum predicted that it will take until 2133 to achieve global gender parity but with men and women joining forces we can collectively help women advance equal to their numbers and realize the limitless potential they offer economies the world over.
In our corner of the world and in what has long been thought of as a male dominated industry, Steelman Transportation is proud to have women make up 51% of the office staff including several management positions and 5% of our driving force matching the national average of female professional truck drivers according to Women in Trucking.
