McDonough – (August 1, 2014) – Last month Bennett International Group LLC., launched a new program geared toward the women driving for Bennett called Bennett Women in the Driver’s Seat.
The program includes networking and mentoring opportunities, and a one year free membership to Women In Trucking Association, an active group with a mission to find opportunities to promote the accomplishments of women in the industry. And to celebrate the women of Bennett, profiles and articles about Bennett women drivers are featured on the company’s website.
The program began as a result of Marcia Taylor, chief executive officer and president of Bennett International Group, being named Women In Trucking’s 2014 Most Influential Woman in Trucking at the end of March 2014.
“I was humbled and honored to receive the Women in Trucking 2014 Influential Woman in Trucking Award, and it got me to thinking that we really needed to do something within the company to support, to encourage, and to promote the women of Bennett,” Taylor said. “Bennett Women in the Driver’s Seat program is our way of recognizing these women in the industry and supporting them in their many accomplishments.”
