This June we are holding 3 events across the UK to promote She’s RHA, to look to the future and to see what we can all do to encourage more women to come into our industry. With the current skills shortage in haulage we think now is a fantastic time and opportunity to bring more women into the industry.
Spreading the word
We're keen to encourage more women to come into our industry, so these events are focused at not only providing networking and mentoring opportunities, but they will also give you the tools to promote the haulage industry to women in your local communities - whether that's at a local college, school or community group.
