Ellen Voie founded the Women In Trucking Association in 2007. She is the holder of a commercial driver's license and has been advocating for the empowerment of women in the trucking industry since 1980. Voie felt the need for such an organization while working as the Manager of Recruiting and Retention Programs at Schneider National. As manager of recruiting and retention programs, she was targeting women but realized that the industry could do a lot more to attract women into the transportation business. To better address the issues that women face, she founded Women In Trucking
Since its founding in 2007, the organization has worked to raise awareness and encourage women to become truck drivers. In 2008, WIT held its first reception at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Kentucky. Ellen Voie, as founder, later became the President and CEO of the organization and Leigh Foxall was named chairwoman. In 2010, WIT held its first annual “Salute to Women Behind the Wheel” and that same year gained a monthly feature on SiriusXM's Freewheelin’ show.[
