Accelerate Conference & Expo

A Unique Event With A Critical Mission

The 2022 Accelerate Conference & Expo was a record-breaking event, drawing in over 1700 attendees and featuring 100+ industry professionals as keynote speakers. With 150+ exhibitors, sponsorships galore, and an amazing 20+ featured trucks/trailers to admire—it’s no wonder that this year saw the most success yet for this beloved trucking industry conference.

In Dallas, Texas, Women In Trucking Association’s Accelerate! conference was a life-altering experience that spanned four days.

For more than 10 years, Women in Trucking has been dedicated to inspiring employment, solving impediments, and honoring achievements. It’s supported by a passionate leadership team, highly engaged members, and committed sponsors and partners.

As their membership base keeps growing, they continue to foster a powerful community of supportive members – primarily business professionals and professional drivers who share the same vision as them.

The Women In Trucking Association’s Accelerate! Conference focused on three areas:

  • Encourage Employment
  • Address Obstacles
  • Celebrate Successes

Kirsch Transportation is proudly a women-owned company and stands firmly behind The Women in Trucking’s initiatives, as well as the Accelerate! Conference.

Encourage Employment

Unlock new perspectives, cultivate novel ideas, and open the door to innovation by embracing gender diversity in the trucking industry. Gain access to critical market intelligence, content curation services, networking opportunities with peers and trucking industry leaders alike; even obtain best practices that will help women increase performance and revenue generation.

Women In Trucking

Women in trucking and logistics deserve flexible work arrangements, equitable pay, and corporate cultures that foster their professional growth. Their resources provide best practices and innovative ideas to create inclusive environments where women can thrive professionally in the trucking and logistics industries.

Celebrate Success

Numerous organizations in the transportation sector are reaping the rewards of a diverse workforce. Attendees of the Accelerate! Conference discovered what other remarkably talented people and groundbreaking companies are doing to take advantage of gender diversity by participating in Women in Trucking’s wide array of awards and recognition programs.

Leading The Way

Kirsch Transportation is proud to be leading the way in gender diversity within the transportation industry and is thrilled that 38% of our team members are women! As we honor this achievement, it stands as a symbol of the growing progress toward greater inclusion that Women In Trucking Association has passionately championed for over ten years.

Kirsch Transportation was pleased to send an extraordinary group of women to the Women in Trucking Association’s Accelerate! Conference & Expo held in Dallas during early November.

“I felt very honored to attend the conference with this group of women representing Kirsch Transportation. I’m glad we got to spend time with each other outside of work learning & networking with other women in the industry, it was an amazing experience,” – Mary Kelly, Freight Broker & Operations Manager.

Between speed networking, workshops, receptions, interactive roundtable discussions, expo time, and more, there were plenty of ways our Kirsch team could make meaningful connections, build relationships, and learn from the experiences of others in the industry.

The Women In Trucking Association’s Accelerate! Conference & Expo in Dallas exceeded all expectations and left us feeling more inspired than ever to continue breaking barriers in transportation. We look forward to attending Accelerate! 2023, as well as continuing to be an advocate for gender diversity at Kirsch Transportation and within the trucking industry.

We strongly encourage you to check out next year’s Accelerate Conference & Expo!
