The editorial staff of WIT’s Redefining the Road magazine selected these individuals for their significant career accomplishments in the past 12 to 18 months as well as their efforts to promote gender diversity.
“It’s always exciting when a third-party recognizes the contributions of our employees, who in this case are among the trucking industry’s top professionals,” said
Of the 70 “Top Women to Watch,” 11 are Yellow employees:
Andrea Anderson, Equipment Manager Patrice Brown, Assistant General Counsel Heather Callaway, Audit Manager Leah Dawson, Executive Vice President, General Counsel & Secretary Summer Dean, Talent Acquisition Director Lucia Dorr, Talent Development Specialist Maria Grasty, Operations Manager Tamara Jalving, Vice President, Safety Melissa Jass, Senior Organizational Development Business Partner Heather Noland, HR Director Deanna Parker, Payroll Director

Yellow remains committed to attracting, developing and retaining women in the transportation industry. Through its women’s leadership development program, the Company engages women across the organization by building a network of support and inclusion, and providing the tools and training to develop the skills needed for career longevity. Yellow boosted its resources for women by creating a Women’s Inclusion Network, an employee resource group designed to foster relationships, enhance the employee experience, support women behind the wheel and develop a strong pool of future leaders in what’s traditionally been a male-dominated industry.
“One of our Company’s top priorities is to attract, develop and retain top talent in the trucking industry,” said
