Dr. K. Kellie Leitch, Canada’s Minister of Labour and Minister of Status of Women, will be among a growing list of high-profile speakers at Trucking HR Canada’s Women with Drive Leadership Summit.
“We are honoured to welcome the Minister to our event,” says Angela Splinter, CEO of Trucking HR Canada. “Her participation demonstrates the federal government’s commitment to the Women with Drive initiative.”
The March 5 event, hosted at the Sheraton Toronto Airport Hotel and Conference Centre, is designed for everyone who recruits, retains or mentors women in Canada’s trucking industry.
The agenda includes panels and presentations by women who hold senior roles in the trucking industry, representatives of other industries looking to draw women into non-traditional roles, and a keynote presentation by Brenda Andress, commissioner of the Canadian Women’s Hockey League.
Topics include mentorship programs, best practices from other industries, the Women with Drive Project, personal success stories, and steps to hone leadership skills. There will also be a networking reception to salute International Women’s Day.
