The Diversity and Inclusion Index launched in 2021, as partnership between CarriersEdge and Women In Trucking, and runs through the summer and fall each year. The program identifies trends, shares best practices, and publicly recognizes the efforts of private and for-hire fleets to diversify the North American trucking industry.

November (WIT Accelerate! Conference)
Specific dates for interview deadlines and winner announcements change based on each year's calendar and the scheduling of the WIT Accelerate! conference.
The Diversity and Inclusion Index is open to any private or for-hire trucking company operating 10 trucks or more in the US or Canada. Fleets do not have to be members of Women In Trucking and there's no cost to participate.
To be considered, a current employee must submit an application on behalf of the fleet, then the fleet must complete the evaluation process within prescribed timelines.
After the data is collected, companies are scored on their efforts, the results they're seeing, and the feedback from employees.
The top scoring companies across different categories receive recognition each year.
