Open to professionals in various roles within the industry, including drivers, dispatchers, managers, technicians, executives, HR professionals, meetings professionals and lawyers, the Women in Motion Mentorship Program invites individuals to join as mentors and make a profound difference in the lives of young women. Recognizing the immeasurable value of their knowledge and expertise, ATA encourages mentors to share their wisdom with aspiring women professionals seeking guidance, support, and encouragement.

By participating as a mentor, individuals can shape the future of the transportation industry by nurturing talent and empowering young women to overcome challenges and seize opportunities. Moreover, active involvement in the mentorship program contributes to fostering a more inclusive and supportive environment that values and embraces women at all levels.
