Nominations open for WTFC mentorship award

Women’s Trucking Federation of Canada opened nominations for its 7th annual Bridging the Gaps Mentorship Award.

This award recognizes the value of mentoring and positive impact of strong mentoring relationships on individual mentees within the trucking industry, as effective mentoring involves getting to know a mentee’s personal strengths and goals, and then providing tailored advice and encouragement, according to a news release.

This award also acknowledges future leaders for their interpersonal skills and effectiveness in working with individuals of diverse backgrounds and levels of experience.

Those interested in nominating a friend or colleague in the industry can do so here by Aug. 25.
