Women-Owned Business Initiative Shines at WIT’s Accelerate Conference

The grit and determination shown by participants in the 150 Business Challenge program served as a focal point for ES Co-Founder and CEO Jason Williams when he shared the news with the Accelerate Conference audience that ES had reached the goal of assisting in the creation of 150 women-owned businesses in trucking.

In listening to Jason’s remarks at Accelerate, it was clear that the success in trucking realized by those who used the 150 Business Challenge as the launching point for truck ownership and business creation provided the kind of proven track record that inspired the ES Leadership Team to make the commitment to continue the effort and go beyond the initial challenge.

The video above features Jason’s time on the main stage at Accelerate as well as interviews discussing the 150 Business Challenge and the company’s continued commitment through the Women-Owned Business Initiative. During the video, you will hear Women In Trucking Association President & CEO Ellen Voie praise the work of ES and the program participants, noting how this initiative fully supports the primary mission of the Women In Trucking Association by creating more opportunities for women.

While the audience hearing the news during Jason’s time at the podium reacted with a strong round of applause, Jeff Tacker captured the interest of a national radio audience during his appearance that same morning on the Dave Nemo Radio Show, which is heard on SiriusXM’s Road Dog Trucking Radio Channel 146.
