The DEI Committee is dedicated to supporting our members and the industry in enhancing their practices for hiring and retaining a diverse workforce. Every company has its unique diversity, and we believe that fostering inclusivity not only aligns with ethical values but also proves beneficial for the bottom line. This principle extends to your interactions with both customers and prospects, shaping the way they perceive your engagement with them and your internal team.

Position : Global

One of the beautiful aspects of DEI is that there are always ways to enhance, expand, and improve. There may not be much we can control in the freight market or overall global state, but we can control how we treat one another. I could not be prouder of the TMSA DEI Taskforce and the space we have created to begin doing that work.

Werner Enterprises

Our industry's strength lies in its diversity, with each hardworking truck driver playing a crucial role. It's time we celebrated the backbone of our nation more visibly. Let's embrace this opportunity to make our industry more inclusive and vibrant.

As a newcomer to the logistics industry, I joined TMSA to reap the educational benefits. I never expected the Elevate experience would make me feel “at home” in the industry. I met so many people (especially women!) channeling neurodivergence as superpowers; I felt encouraged and seen. For a PoC in Florida, this was a big deal to me. I look forward to even more challenging and inspirational offerings from TMSA in the future.
