Peterbilt Motors Company today announced it will be
recognized by Women in Trucking as a top workplace for women in the trucking industry.
Peterbilt will receive the award on November 13th as part of the Women in Trucking Accelerate conference being hosted this year in Dallas, Texas.
“Receiving this award is a testament to Peterbilt’s commitment to fostering and empowering a diverse workforce,” said Jason Skoog, Peterbilt General Manager. “I am excited about our progress to date, and the continued expansion across all of Peterbilt’s diversity initiatives, including the implementation earlier this year of a Veteran’s affinity group.”
In 2018 Peterbilt’s Women Initiative (PBWIN) has featured guest speaker Joann Lublin, retired
management news editor for The Wall Street Journal and author of “Earning It: Hard-Won
Lessons from Trailblazing Women at the Top of the Business World”, as well as led workshops
on growing one’s personal brand. Empowerment of local students and individuals is an outreach
initiative of PBWIN. The organization frequently visits local primary and secondary schools to
promote STEAM education.
Under the Peterbilt Diversity Council, Peterbilt has two affinity groups to date: PBWIN and the
Veterans’ organization. PBWIN currently has more than 100 members within their organization
who are dedicated to championing the empowerment of women at Peterbilt through education,
support, networking, personal growth and development opportunities.
