The North American Trailer Dealers Association (NATDA) said it will form a Women in the Trailer Industry committee. The inaugural committee will be chaired by Caitlin Jugert, president of The Trailer Parts Outlet and founder and co-host of the “Women in the Trailer Industry” podcast.
“The focus of NATDA’s Women in the Trailer Industry committee is to support women in the industry through education and networking,” said Andria Gibbon, NATDA executive director. “We are very fortunate that Caitlin Jugert agreed to serve as chair. As a pioneer in the industry through the Women in the Trailer Industry podcast, she’s the ideal person to lead the committee as it establishes its framework and goals.”
Added Jugert: “More and more, women are rising to leadership roles in what has historically been a male-dominated industry, and I am excited to help NATDA create a network and resources to address the very issues that Lacey Baker and I discuss on our podcast. It is my hope that this committee will empower women in our industry to succeed and thrive.”
The committee will establish a LinkedIn group to offer women in the light-to-medium duty trailer industry a place to learn, share their insights and experiences, ask for guidance, and build valuable connections.
