“Young girls are a part of the trucking industry’s future.”

— Ellen Voie, president and CEO of Women in Trucking (WIT), explaining the thinking behind a new Girl Scout Transportation badge.

To earn the badge, scouts attend a “Trucks Are for Girls” event where they can talk to experts, drive a simulator, and even climb inside the cab of a big rig. In an article in DC Velocity, Voie explained that she came up with the idea as a way to familiarize girls with the trucking industry, part of WIT’s efforts to encourage women to pursue careers in trucking and help alleviate the driver shortage.
