With CILT’s world class educational platform as a
foundation we make change real, combining 21st
Century teaching with 21st Century attitudes.
We aim to create a diversified industry, an equal
society and a world where the workplace is open
to all without prejudice.
The WiLAT logo and pin were
designed by Dorothy Chan and
WiLAT supporters in Hong Kong.
The initial letter of ‘W’ for women
is replicated as a flying bird to
signify that women are flexible,
industrious, holistic, strategic
and elegant. Birds are usually
gregarious and work in teams
which is also a core value in the
logistics and transport world.
As WiLAT Turkey Chairperson, I feel thrilled and honoured to have launched WiLAT Turkey together with 11 esteemed and powerful women from our sector.
As leading female members of the male-dominated logistics and transport ecosystem, we truly know the challenges of being a woman, but we also know that success is possible despite all the hardships.
As WiLAT Turkey family, our goal is to show the new generation that it is possible for them, too.
Our efforts as a team will be dedicated to empowering women and achieving gender equality in our sector. Having adopted the WiLAT Global values and principles, we will support, motivate, and encourage young professionals and aspiring young women so that they feel empowered to achieve their goals and fulfil their potential.
I truly believe that WiLAT Turkey will quickly become the leading organization regarding women’s issues in our sector, because we have a wonderful team of 12 women and a strong WiLAT Global network and presence around us.
We are stronger together!
Chairperson WiLAT Turkey
